Playmobil Magician with Genie Lamp FigurePlaymobil toys are a lot of fun. In the name of imagination and efficiency, there's no name on the box - so on Playmobilusa.com, this set is Magician with Genie Lamp. But in other languages, I see things like "Guardian with Genie" or "Magician with Spirit in the Glass Bottle." The company does seem to play with names in different regions to give them the most appropriate look for the region, so darker skinned family packs may be Hispanic in North America, but Greek in Europe. What I'm getting at is this is totally a genie in a lamp Arabian Nights thing.

Playmobil Magician with Genie Lamp FigureOver the last four decades, you can really see some amazing improvements in how paint is used on these guys. Gold stars and trim are joined with purple highlights as well as snap-on gold parts really bring this purple guy to life. He's got eyebrows and a goatee too, plus molded earrings under his hat. The figure has a unileg as all Playmobil men do, with articulated wrists, arms, and head. It's a good figure with a nice scimitar-looking sword, although it doesn't seem like a perfect fit for his belt loop. His hands can hold it with no problem, though.

The real selling point of this set is the Genie accessory. It's been in other sets, but this is probably the cheapest way to get him. It's hollow, like a cake mold. The little claw hands can hold accessories, and you can plug his little tail into a bottle base. The bottle plugs into a little carpet thing with gold and purple accents on it, making it a worthwhile desk accessory. Oh, and it glows in the dark, this is also very important and a good reason to buy it if you have a glow-in-the-dark toy stash like I do. The figure itself is quite tall with all of his bases and has no articulation.

One thing I love about Playmobil is that there are lots of things that probably aren't things American kids would ask for. Vaguely middle eastern figures would be one of these, along with bellhops and homeless people. I love this stuff, and this is totally going to go on my shelf with all the best figures like the nun and the ghost. You really can't go wrong with this stuff.
