    Award-winning show "Breaking Bad" was popular with critics, but one mom says it doesn't belong in a children's store.

    The show centers on a high school chemistry teacher named Walter White, who, upon learning he has cancer, turns to making and selling meth to ensure his family will be financially secure once he's gone.

    So it is a show for adults. That's definitely how mom Susan Schrivjer feels. She wants Toys R Us to pull toys modeled off the hit show.

    SUSAN SCHRIVJER VIA WFTX: "It's about drugs. They're selling it in a children's toy store."

    ANCHOR: "The Walter White toy dons a lab coat and comes with two beakers and a gas mask."

    SCHRIVJER: "Kids mimic their action figures."

    And the action figures come with drug paraphernalia, although the Toys R Us website doesn't come out and say that's what it is. It refers to one of Walter White's accessories as "blue crystals."

    Crystals ... as in methamphetamine.

    Toys R Us did release a statement saying the toys are meant for ages 15 and up, and they are located in the adult action- figure areas.

    Schrivjer has started a Change.org petition to get the toys removed from the shelves. In it, she asks the company to stop selling the collection both in stores and online.

    Schrivjer is not only targeting Toys R Us, but other stores sell the "Breaking Bad" toys as well.

    Barnes & Noble advertises them for ages 14-plus, and Walmart lists them for ages 15-plus.

    Although it's unclear whether the figurines are offered in the toy sections at Wal-Mart and Barnes & Noble, those two stores don't specialize in toys only, as Toys R Us does.

    When I was a kid you could buy toy machine guns, toy bazookas, grenades, full army outfits. Plus you could outfit yourself to kill some Indians.

    I turned out OK.....sort of.
