Breaking Bad dolls taken out of toy store

Toys R Us in the US is pulling its four collectible dolls based on the characters from the hit series Breaking Bad.

The dolls are based on the series about a high school chemistry teacher named Walter White who turns into a crystal meth dealer and his sidekick Jesse Pinkman.

The toys have a detachable bag of cash and a bag of methamphetamines.

Toys R Us said that the dolls are being removed immediately from its website and shelves.

"Let's just say, the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical," said Toys R Us in a statement.

The retailer had maintained that the figures are sold in limited quantities in the adult action figure area of its stores.

Florida mother Susan Schrivjer launched a petition last week demanding that Toys R Us immediately stop selling the dolls.
