Playmobil to German Pastor: stop Bible bending our toys!
Playmobil toys have been subjected to plastic surgery under the hands of an evangelical preacher in Germany to transform them from ordinary child's toys into models of biblical stories.
"We are quite tolerant if this is done in the privacy of the home but if someone crucifies a Playmobil figure, or, as in the case of Eve, glues on breasts, then this is a completely different dimension," explains a Playmobil spokeswoman.

No word yet on whether The Brick Testament has pushed the limits of Lego's tolerance.
