Talking Jesus to bring Tales of Glory to Britain?
A US company is hoping its range of biblical dolls will take off when they are launched in Britain next year.
California-based One2Believe has enjoyed massive success in the States with its Tales of Glory range, which includes a plastic talking Jesus who recites three verses from the Bible.
One of the verses is almost a minute long and recounts the feeding of the 5,000 with five loaves and two fishes.
Company spokesman Josh Livingston said: ‘We are actively looking for a company that can distribute the toys to retailers in the UK. The UK market is important to us because we want to reach children with the Gospel whether they live in the US or Europe or elsewhere.’
He added: ‘We are finding that the toys are being purchased by parents who are both very involved in their faith and those who are looking to introduce faith to their children.’
