HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV) -- A toy company has received quite the response after creating a 'crystal meth lab' play set.

The 'meth lab' play set is inspired by the show "Breaking Bad" uses Legos, a classic standard plastic brick toy all kids know and love.

Except this is not a Lego-made creation. The kit is made by a company called Citizen Brick

The corporate drug factory resembles the meth lab from the AMC's "Breaking Bad" and looks exactly like play sets by Lego.

It retails for $250 and is currently sold out.

Bill Becker with the Valley Family Forum said he is appalled by the play set.

"The federal government has consumer safety organization that warns parents about small parts because they're dangerous to children, obviously it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that marbles could cause a youngster to choke, but here is a toy that can corrode the values the mind," said Becker.

While this is clearly priced for use as an adult collectible, it is still feared that children will get their hands on it.

Lego has distanced itself from the product and in no way supports it.
