Mother wants 'Breaking Bad' figures removed from Toys R Us

Susan Schrivjer, a mother from Fort Myers, launched a petition in early October to have White -- and other "Breaking Bad" action figures -- removed from Toys R Us. As of Monday morning, the Change.org request has received more than 2,000 signatures.

In the petition, Schrivjer -- who wrote the appeal under the name "Susan Myers" -- gets right to the point.

"Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages," she wrote. "However their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

Toys R Us has yet to respond to a CNN query. In a statement to WFTX, the toy giant said, "The products you reference are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up. Items from this TV series are located in the adult action figure area of our stores."
