IDEAS for Christmas Gifts -- 12" Deborah the Warrior figure comes complete with warrior clothing, shield. Figure comes with scroll of the complete Bible story of Deborah the Warrior. Other action figures also available. Strange that someone from the Middle East would have blue eyes and blond hair.

Wow. I'm just about speechless.

(Also, this reminds me of my other question lately-- why are Christmas card illustrators so unconvinced that Jesus was Middle Eastern?)

We've also had some relationships with biblical character dolls recently.

I'd love to know what you think of (on my husband's blog).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Delurking...on a glass-half-full note, I'm just amazed that a patriarchal institution like the Christian toy industry (my pastor, in his un-self-censored moments, refers to such stuff as Kristian krap) actually developed a female biblical action figure.

Sharing your Christmas brought joy to my heart!
Made me wonder if the world would be a better place if all of us could share our Christmases.
This year we are fielding requests from callers to our church asking for gifts for their children, clearly not having enough to do that themselves. This year they have been young unmarried, or now not married, mothers, one with a one year old and a two year old ("She's nearly three", she proudly exclaimed as we gave her a colorful counting toy we picked up at Toys R Us); we tested every one of the hit the chimes toy for the one year old to get one that was sort of in tune--didn't want the little girl to grow up tone deaf! Another has a nine year old who wanted a 'Real Baby Doll', possibly not quite the one we bought her, but it has her own stroller; and the sisteen year old only wants clothes; 'her friends don't have toys', the mother said. Every year brings new situations--when someone donated a lot, I mean, a lot, of used toys, parents just happened to show up with children who were absolutely delighted with the toys we had been given. Go figure! Is Santa the Holy Spirit, really?
