Priest cites NZ Study to label Lego as a tool of Satan

A Polish priest, Father Slawomir Kostrzewa, is citing a study from New Zealand in a dire warning that Lego’s new line of Monster Fighters and Zombies figures are tools of Satan that can destroy their children’s souls.

Kostrzewa says the Danish toy company had taken a lurch to the dark side with its series of Monster Fighters and Zombie mini-figures, and that they “were about darkness and the world of death”

The New Zealand study by Christopher Barneck of University of Canterbury has found the number of happy faces on Legos is decreasing, and more angry faces are taking their place.

Barneck studied all the 6000 Lego figures including Harry Potter and pirate-themed toys, and says they are increasingly angry and based on conflict – with potentially harmful effects on children’s play and development.

Kostrzewa’s attack on Lego is not the first time he has accused toys of harbouring evil. Hello Kitty and My Little Pony have also come under his scrutiny, with the latter being described as a “carrier of death”.
