Bible-based toys hit US stores

 Instead of Action Man or Barbie dolls, American children may be playing a talking Jesus toy, a bearded Moses or a muscle-bound figure of Goliath this Christmas. One2believe - a company specialising in Christian toys, has brought out a spectacular range of faith-based action toys which it hopes will win over the market. Company founder David Socha, said: "We get a lot of people, even people who are not of faith, don't go to church, saying 'I've got a four and a six-year-old and I don't know what to get them any more' "If you go in a toy aisle in any major retailer, you will see toys and dolls that promote and glorify evil, destruction, lying, cheating. "In the girls' aisle where the dolls would be, you see dolls that are promoting promiscuity to very young girls. Dolls will have very revealing clothes on, G-string underwear." What his company offers instead is "something faith-based that is not only fun to play with but also is solidifying a person's spiritual wherewithal and their spiritual journey", he said. Mr Socha said all the toys have been tried and tested on Sunday school and church groups who loved them. "If the kids aren't engaged and having fun, then we might as well not do it," he said.
