DMZ Mascots And Merchandise

Even the Scariest Places on Earth have to have cheery figures to relate to the kids and stuff to buy to relate to the adults.

At The Bridge of No Return, a couple of giant Fisher Price-like Korean officers greet you and pose for pictures. Model military.

In the gift shop, you get the opportunity to outfit the whole family. And don't forget the official Republic of Korea (ROK- gotta love that acronym) military issue sunglasses, suspiciously similar to what they wore on CHiPs.

The scariest paperweight in the world: A scale model of the border meeting area, complete with blue UN huts. A life-size GI Joe (GI Jun-suh?).
