I love this Nunzilla - have bought many of them over the years and have even made a short film of them waddling through the countryside (well, ok, my table), breathing sparks and looking a right angry mess. If you are buying this toy for durability - forget it - it's really not going to survive a tidal wave or being thrown about - but if you want to have a bit of a laugh every now and then, go for it. As for educational value - well, I suppose it depends on one's view of the right to make fun of one's own (or others') religions. Personally, I think this is a critical, essential right to free speech and freedom of religion, so, not to get too overly high handed about it, I'd say it's educational value is quite strong (though maybe not a 5)! The only thing I'd really caution anyone about concerns where one actually purchases this toy. Some companies will charge postage per item even if multiple amounts are going to the same address (and since they weigh almost nothing, this is really annoying). So just be careful at checkout.
