You may have heard about the Florida mother, Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, who completely flipped her shit when she found out that Toys ‘R Us sold Breaking Bad action figures, that had a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth. Schrivjer said, “their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”
So Scared that she wouldn’t be able to stop her self from purchasing these adult toys for her helpless children, Schrivjer did the only thing she felt like she could do, she started an online petition to have the toys removed. After she received more than 9,000 signatures, Toys R Us was more than happy to oblige.
This didn’t come with out some push back. Breaking Bad stars, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, took to their twitter to express their outrage:
I can see both sides of the argument…but Breaking Bad is cool! And if high school taught me anything it’s, always side with cool!
SO here is a list of 6 things way worse than breaking bad action figures that Toys ‘R Us still sells!
1- Predator 7 Inch Action Figure Predator vs Dutch 2pk
“You’re one…ugly motherfucker!”
Thats right, and now you can own this ‘ugly motherfucker’ and the Predator! …see what I did there?
This two pack, based of the rated R 1980’s classic, comes with a blood soaked Schwarzenegger and battle damaged Predator. For a measly 22.98—with special offer—you can pretend to shove a bladed spike right through Arnie’s square shaped, bloodied face.
If it bleeds, we can kill it!
2- Monster High Dolls
Now, what kind of image are we trying to send the young women of today? They cannot compete with the standards of a beautiful, vase shaped, eight armed, spider woman!
Ladies, you’re beautiful the way you are, don’t let these standards make you think otherwise…but if you can afford two killer tops that suit your spidery mood, i’m not saying not to buy them.
3- Grand Theft Auto V
Awww yes, nothing says “family friendly values” more than being able to beat a digital prostitute to death over a few stacks of floating money.
“Quick dad, that innocent bystander is getting away, equip your sniper riffle and take his head off!”
4- The Walking Dead Construction The Governor and The Fish Tank Room
Did you know, for just under $30.00 you can buy a homicidal maniac, his zombie daughter, and an entire room filled with floating heads!? Me either…
I should shop at Toys R Us more often, because I spent a fortune on my room of floating heads.
5- Just Like Home Dirt Devil jr. Deluxe Play Vac
This item is found in the little girls section of Toys R Us. Boys can vacuum too damnit!
The only way this toy could be more offensive, is if it came with an apron and a drunken husband doll, that spouted off recorded catch phrases such as: “Get in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!” or “If I wanted your sass, I’d beat it out of ya!”
Also Devil is in the name…satanism, really Toys R Us!? Now you’ve gone too far!
6- Anything, and all things Frozen
Let it go, let it go, let it go…indeed! Lets just all, for the love of god, let it go!
I don’t think these items need to be removed from Toys R Us, on the contrary, I think they should ALL stay and I think the Breaking Bad action figures should be returned to all stores.
You may ask why? That’s a simple answer. Because the toys are not and never were, intended for children! Much like some of the other adult content within the Toys R Us stores. I’m not sure if Mrs. Schrivjer is aware of this, but she doesn’t HAVE to purchase the toys, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us shouldn’t even have the option.
If you agree the toys should be returned to stores, go here: http://www.change.org/p/toys-r-us-keep-breaking-bad-and-other-adult-collector-figures-on-tru-shelves and sign this petition that was started by Daniel Pickett of Manhattan Beach. It already has more than 36,000 signatures.
