Oh look, new Playmobil blind pack minifigures. And one of them is an Indian snake dancer... I'm going to put this in the cultural appropriation category, which is a category of toys I tend to pick up: European companies that make semi-stereotypical figures of Asian cultures. She's got the bindi and the snake and I just realized I don't know enough about South Asian cultures to really be judgmental.
Sigh, whether it's racist or not, it's an interesting figure and at least Playmobil is trying by making figures of different races. Wow, this was nicer than I thought it was gonna be.
