Denver school creates action figures of saints for kids

Action Saints' St. Michael the Archangel figure

.- St. Michael the Archangel is the model for a saint-based action figure, part of a new “Action Saints” series from the Denver-based Kolbe Film School. The series is intended to engage children in their faith and help them get acquainted with the saints.

The poseable, four-inch-tall figures “provide children the ability to put the heroes of our faith in action,” Kolbe Film School said.

“St. Michael leads the holy angels, saints, and the Church militant over the evil powers against the Church today -- a true hero for our times.”

The figures’ creators said that figures of saints tend to be “dangerous and breakable ceramic, metal and glass statues,” not something that children can play with. They contended that these statues convey to children the message “Do not touch!”

The creators saw the need for child-friendly figures after hearing parents’ stories about their son who loves to play with a St. Michael statuette, even though he has broken off its wings and punctured himself with its spear.

Other saints’ figures in development include St. Maximilian Kolbe and St. Therese of Lisieux. The school also sells trading cards of saints to help children learn more about them.

Kolbe Film School provides online training for students around the world. Its mission is to train artists to create media to inspire “a culture of life.”
