Delightful Playmobil Parking Stops in Rio

Check out these amazing Playmobil-inspired parking obstacles-another example of artists taking mundane parts of a city and making them utterly charming.As good as Google Translate is, it was hard to find much about them, but here is what we do know: The little guys are in the beachy Rio neighborhood of Botafogo. They are by Rodrigo Pereira, who has engaged in other forms of public art/intervention in Rio. And they are utterly delightful to look at. One of them even has a beard.You can see more of this guy's stuff below, and on his Flickr page.
