Sellers in Singapore have pulled counterfeit Lego sets featuring ISIS militants off their shelves, The Straits Times reported on Wednesday.

The made-in-China toys were sold on and offline, and at local online marketplace Carousell, the newspaper reported. The sets were recommended for children between six and 12.

A Lego spokeswoman told CNBC on Thursday that the products are "in no way affiliated with the Lego Group nor are the bricks in the set Lego bricks."

"As a company dedicated to inspire and develop children, we would naturally never make a product like this," added Charlotte Simonsen, a senior director of corporate communications at the iconic toy company.
