Faith-based toys to hit US stores

An new range of dolls is being launched in the USA in August. According to the BBC
Instead of Spiderman or Bratz dolls, children in the US could soon be clutching a talking Jesus toy, a bearded Moses or a muscle-bound figure of Goliath.
Well I thought these characters were fictional and now they are being produced as dolls we have some more positive empirical evidence to back that up.

Y'know, I feel bad for the poor kids who get some of those from overly devout parents. Almost every boy I knew went through a destructive phase around 10 years old where grunt Cobra soldiers or He-Man's alter ego, Adam got blown up with fire crackers. Kids are kids. I hope parents who give their kids these *toys* understand that playing is not always tea parties.

Otherwise, there'll be lots of confessionals about how the toys are treated.
