Venezuela's government took 4 million children's toys from a toy company. It will give them to children for free or at low prices. The government says the company charged high prices for the toys. Only rich people could buy them. Venezuela has one of the highest rates of inflation in the world. Many people can't afford things like toys. The monthly minimum salary does not buy much. Venezuela has also cut the price of clothes.

The government tweeted: "Our children are sacred….Boys and girls of this country will have a happy Christmas." The government said the toy company kept the toys out of the shops to increase prices. The government also said the company tried to sell the toys at much higher prices. The company said it did nothing wrong and was not trying to sell the toys at high prices. It said many of the toys were not in fashion.
