A Russian online toy store offered for sale a paddy wagon with toy riot policemen for children to play riot police cracking down on a rally.

      The toy is convincing replica of grey Kamaz trucks used by riot police during its clashes with the opposition in Moscow last month. The toy has a special cabin with two back doors for carrying cargo or the arrested protesters inside. Toy riot police are an optional equipment. 

      The company also promises to create a set of toy protesters one of which would comprise politicians such as Alexei Navalny and Sergei Udaltsov and another opposition-minded art and culture figures such as rock singer Yury Shevchuk and novelist Boris Akunin.

       "It is a topical joke", the store's director said. According to him, many adults buy such toys as funny gifts for friends. 

      Such toys have already attracted attention of the press. In May protest actions, a man who carried a toy paddy wagon on a string, became one of the most popular objects for photographers.
