Default Personal “Toys”

Not trolling but visiting Dubai this week. Flying from LHR.
Visiting with my wife and we thought about bringing a personal toy.
I know this is officially banned but in RL would it be picked up and enforced coming in to Dubai?
Not the end of the world if it’s a huge problem at customs we won’t bother.
Just interested in if people have known of issues.
Cheers

Sure, bring your 'personal toy' with you, I suggest you wrap it in an Israeli flag.
What part of 'banned' don't you understand?

and in real life, people bring them in all the time - apparently, it is better to have it in your hand luggage and put it in your pocket (jacket, not the velvet lined one you scoundrel) before you get off the plane.

Lived in Qatar for 5 years. Lots of things were Haram but ignored such as importing pork for personal use.
Just asking a question. Do you have actually any useful advice?????

More information than I needed. I'm sure people do bring them in successfully, and other banned items as well. I'm also sure that one of my sister's friends, who worked in Dubai for 7 years, took one back after a trip to Oz and had a very unpleasant 2 hours in Dubai airport after it was detected in a checked baggage scan.

Yep, but I don't think it's any that you want to hear.

Thats why it doesn’t go in the checked luggage. She should have asked on here for advice.

Could you not be willing to apply for the 'personal toy' task ?

I was thinking of suggesting this - there might be more than one position vacant too.

it is hit and miss. I know of people who have brought them in and they were confiscated. Some for personal use others for hen nights etc. Crew used to get them through ( that was years ago though)
