    Is This An Own Goal For Toys R Us?
    Affiliates promoting Toys R Us should check datafeeds and possibly remove a product from the feed listing (especially if promoting in the US).

    Toys R Us Breaking Bad dolls: the must-have Christmas toy for your kids? | Television & radio | theguardian.com

    Toys R Us are selling dolls of the Breaking Bad stars. These pictorially accurate dolls include a bag of (imitation) Crystal Meth with the Walter White doll.

    Nice one Toys R Us. Just 65 shopping days to Christmas and you've shot yourselves one there.

    The difference in what I posted then is that's for adults with ions, as opposed to a toy for 15 years and upwards which can be misconstrued as glorifying Crystal Meth.

    Noting in the the first 25 post talking about ions, from what I read in the first 25 post in the thread you just wanted to make a percentage from the selling of drugs.

    I see that Colorado did $1 million on the first day of sales in stores. Perfect time to buy online and collect in store. So who has approached the stores to offer an affiliate program? Colorado is a bit far for me to go and ask them but I'd be happy to handle the affiliate program on a rev share.
    My personal option is what you wanted to do was by far worse then what Toys are Us are doing. But that is just my option.

    fyi I stopped reading the thread after 25 posts due to lack of interest in the topic and up to that point ions were never brought up.

    As you can tell I am Anti-Drugs
    MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

    Fair point made. However it was State approved, as opposed to Federal approved and was and is still legal for five years before review in Colorado and if you had continued to read, you'd have seen that more than half of all US States have approved the ion of Medical Marijuana.

    Oh the power of a little negative advertising.

    BBC News - Breaking Bad dolls pulled from Toys R Us after petition

    A US toy store chain has pulled four action figures based on characters from the popular TV drama Breaking Bad, following a petition for their removal.
