German protest over Nazi toy soldiers on Amazon
A German father is campaigning online to stop Lego-style toy Nazi soldiers being sold on Amazon.
Manuel Hegel’s petition says the toys “represent officers, soldiers etc of the Waffen-SS and thereby trivialise National Socialism”.
The toys are sold by a German firm, CustomBricks, and Lego says they do not comply with Lego’s own values.
A Lego statement said the Danish toy firm “does not in any way sponsor or endorse the product – on the contrary”.
