What could be more fun than weilding Samson the Spirit Warrior, re-enacting Daniel in the Lion’s Den or spending hours of bliss with the Nativity play set? And girls will make a joyful noise when they get Esther Messenger of Faith. Move over Chinese made bimbo Barbie. Esther has a message and it’s not about free love and free willy.
We are one2believe, designers of Bible-based toys for young children, called Tales of Glory. Beginning this August our Tales of Glory toys will become available at select Wal-Mart stores and other retailers across the country.
This program represents a huge opportunity for the faith community as it is the first time a worldwide retailer has opened-up shelf-space for a strong Bible-based toy product, like Tales of Glory! However, this is only a test-run. In fact, Wal-Mart will only have Tales of Glory in about 425 stores and only for a limited time (August through January). They have temporarily made the product available, and are waiting to see the response from their consumers. The success of this program is up to us… we need to take advantage of this amazing opportunity!
This is a chance to let our voices be heard. By supporting this program we can send a message to other retailers and toy makers letting them know that we, as a Christian community, are truly concerned about the toys that our children play with! We are aware of the influence that toys have on our young children’s impressionable minds, so we would like to see more God-honoring options available. It’s a “Battle for the Toy Box”!
These Tales of Glory toys and more will go on sale tomorrow at your local American Wal-Mart store.
