Battle for the Toy Box

The battle ravages on. Millions of dollars have been spent in an effort to win the hearts, minds, and souls of the most elusive and potentially dangerous segment of the human population. This is the War of the Toy Box--a battle which we must be continually prepared to fight as our future is at stake. Willing to be a bystander no longer, one Christian toy manufacturer is sending its soldiers in to fight on the front lines at Wal Mart.

CNN reports:
Wal-Mart spokeswoman Melissa O'Brien said the toys made by One2believe, a Valencia, Calif., company, will be offered in 425 of Wal-Mart's 3,376 discount stores and Supercenters.

One2believe Chief Executive David Socha said his products were part of a " battle for the toy box" with dolls and figures that he said carry negative messages.

"If you're very religious, it's a battle for your children's minds and what they're playing with and pretending. There are remakes out there of Satan and evil things," Socha said.

By the looks of it, One2Believe has pulled out the heavy artillery. Why would your children want to play with these misfits...:
...when they could spend the afternoon enjoying the company of this cheerful bunch?:
