Oh dear. Apparently, one mom is claiming that a Playmobil Pirate set had racist instructions to shackle a dark-skinned character.
Mom Ida Lockett told Sacramento’s local CBS station that the instructions for the set showed how to shackle one of the dark-skinned toy people, who happens to be wearing tattered clothing and a metal collar and is shoeless.

The fact that you can Google it, look it up, say what it is — it’s a slave collar,” she said. “[The toy] told my son to put a slave cuff around the black character’s neck, and then to play with the toy.”
