Toy pig pulled from farm set on religious grounds
by Josie Clarke
A retailer withdrew a toy pig from a children's farm set to avoid the risk of causing offence on religious grounds, it emerged today.
A mother who bought the Early Learning Centre's (ELC) HappyLand Goosefeather Farm for her daughter's first birthday contacted the store after finding that the pig was missing, the Sun newspaper reported.
The £25 set contained a model of a cow, sheep, chicken, horse and dog but no pig, despite there being a sty and a button which generated an "oink".
But ELC chiefs have since decided to reintroduce the pig, with parents who have bought the set invited to get the toy from the company's website.
