    Why are there no minister/priest/rabbi action toys or dolls? Missionary Barby Dolls will not sell? Seems like the one thing that Christians and Jews have in common is they are happiest when their children become doctors or lawyers.

    It would have to be Billy Graham from the 50's, though.

    There actually are companies that will make custom "action figures" for not all that much money. If I had any idea how, I'd love to have a William Wilberforce, Thomas Watson, etc action figures for my kids.

    Bill, I don't believe they have any ministry dolls, but VisionForum.com has all sorts of toys and books for children that celebrate pastors, missionaries, and other Christian heroes.

    We've gotten a lot of great toys and books from them.

    Also, just so you know, children will respond to these stories. Back before we began to homeschool our children, our oldest daughter's class had a "come to school as your favorite person from history day", where children were to write a report on an historical character and portray them in class.

    Melody went to school dressed as Lottie Moon and got to tell the children about her, thus sharing the Gospel in the process.
