For a bit of an existential laugh, I also maintain a Tumblr called Agamben Toys: Apposite baubles for the State of Exception, of images of actual, properly really real, authentic and genuine toys such as Playmobil and Fisher Price riot cops, Matchbox drones, Lego heavy weapons and Prisoner Transport, My First ATM and Airport Security Checkpoint play-sets, and Israeli Defense Force teddy bears. People often think these have been photoshopped, but I assure you that these do exist.

I’m always open to fresh tips. Ping me at leigh.phillips@gmail.com if you come across something appropriately inappropriate and appalling.
