I thought God slept in the buff.

Yet another long held belief shot to hell.

The whole Armor of God Pajama set will help your children to depend on God to protect them from their fears, doubts, and uncertainties at night so their sleep can be restful and peaceful.
Uh huh. And if you put them to bed with a cup of this Exodus 3:8 milk'n'honey drink mix we'll toss in for free, they'll dream in Hebrew too.

This sort of reminds me of when our younger son went through a brief phase where he wanted to wear his Purim costume pretty much 24 hours a day, including to bed. The answer was No, costumes are for playtime, not bedtime, not mealtime either. I've seen similarly overblown superhero pajama outfits in the children's sleepwear section--stuff that's fine for Halloween maybe, but just plain ridiculous for sleeping.

I'm not automatically opposed to toys, etc. that put a religious education spin on "mainstream" equivalents--fun has its place in religious instruction--but as a general rule, if it's a wasteful and/or inane concept to begin with, Biblicizing it isn't going to change that one iota. For the most part, any added moral dimension this brings to most toys exists only in the minds of adults.

A child should feel safe from danger in his parents loving care, not from wearing what looks like the garb of a soldier in the nightmarish slaughter that was the Crusades.

Ooh, I don't like this. This isn't cool. I wouldn't get these for my kids if I had them.

Has a kind of "superstitious" feel to it, like those televangelists hawking green and red handkerchiefs for "prosperity" and "healing" like they were talismans or something...

Seems to run contrary to basic Christian belief(imo).

(feel free to correct me if I'm wrong )

i don't see anything wrong with wearing murderous crusader outfits as long as you are led by christ's love.

If I hadn't seen this covered in numerous other places on the web, I'd assume it was some hot new Landover Baptist Church merchandise.

I can't wait for them to diversity. Armour of Buddha, Armour of Muhammad, Armour of Zoroaster! When can I get my Armour of Satan?

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Actually, as a Christian, I think that putting my child into these silly looking pajamas would serve to trivialize the idea of the "armor of God", which would be a big disservice to the faith in which I would want to raise the kid. In Ephesians, we Christians are told to put on the "whole armor of God": the "breastplate of righteousness", the "shield of faith", etc. It's a very serious lesson about standing firm in faith. What kind of message does it send when those very important verses are identified with some silly looking pajamas.
