(October 20, 2014) – ‘Kids shouldn’t play with meth’ is the justification behind a petition against a line of Breaking Bad toys at Toys ‘R’ Us.

Breaking Bad is a popular show about a high school chemistry teacher who turns to drug production in an attempt to secure his family`s future.

Despite the fact that the show is very popular, it was a shock for many parents to see the figurines on the shelves of a well-known toy store.

One of the Breaking Bad toys on the Toys `R` Us website bears this description:

Jesse stands 6′ tall and he comes complete with a gas mask, chili powder, and a tray of blue crystal. The whole set is discreetly packaged on a collector-friendly blister card.

A petition was started on Change.org to remove all Breaking Bad toys from the shelves.

The petition already has over 1,900 supporters.

Additionally, the Toys ‘R’ Us Facebook page is filled with posts both for and against the store’s decision to carry the product.

According to the Inquisitr, the question becomes whether it is acceptable for Breaking Bad to be available for purchase where children shop. While some parents would like the Breaking Bad line of action figures and playsets completely removed from stores, others maintain that it is the responsibility of parents to make the decision for their own children.
