Playmobil TSA Airport Security Checkpoint Play Set


"It's time to line up, take off those shoes, remove your laptop from its bag and put those liquids, creams, gels and aerosols in a 1-quart clear plastic baggie because baby, you're getting hand-wanded if you don't agree this set is the absolutely perfect gift for the screener in your life."

From the website:

Playmobil Airport Security Checkpoint Play Set

For Sale: One BRAND NEW collectible Playmobil Airport Security Checkpoint Play Set.

This set (#3172) has been discontinued by Playmobil and is getting very hard to find anywhere.

The toy set is brand spankin' new in a perfect, pristine, unopened box.


Set includes an airline passenger, two security screeners (Transportation Security Officers), a gun, a rolling carry-on suitcase, a chair, a walk-through metal detector (WTMD), a hand-held metal detector (HHMD), an X-ray machine (just pretend it's a Heimann or Rapiscan and prepare for your image test) with a view screen, and a moving baggage belt.

Heck, the X-ray machine even has lead curtains!

Great for kids or collectors.

If you work for the Transportation Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security, are a private, state or local security guard, or just collect Playmobil, this set is a fun and hilarious MUST-HAVE gift item!

Would also make a terrific reward or incentive for a high-performing screener.


I have a small stash of these sets left but folks, when they're gone, they're gone!

You can wait until they're $75 each but why would you want to?

Get it now before this discontinued item disappears forever.

Don't let the collectors snatch them all up!

Play set box measures 10" x 4" x 6".

Make an offer!


Or "buy it now": $39
