This is not a toy: The Greek Tragedy told with Playmobil figures.

Blogger Nikos Papadopoulos repurposes Playmobil's toy figures to create darkly witty tableaux that comment on the reality of modern day Greece. And as with all good satire, not everyone is happy with the outcome, not least the German toy-maker itself that sought to remove his images from the internet.

A ‘happy father, unhappy Greek’ is how Nikos Papadopoulos describes himself on his blog, now known as ‘Plasticobilism’ (Facebook page here). As a good father he first started purchasing Playmobil toys for his young son. As an unhappy Greek he soon realized that the small plastic men, women and children could be repurposed to create images with a political message, to say the things he wanted to say more playfully and more effectively than with any long-winded political diatribe.
