The doll, which is meant to depict a young Jesus Christ, says five different prayers out loud when its left hand is pressed, including Our Father and Hail Mary.
According to ABC, "Jesusito teaches kids to pray while they play".
Aside from praying in five other languages (German, French, Italian, Portuguese and English), it also allows children to record and play back their own orations.
Worth €30 plus another €10 in delivery costs, its promotion on a serious news site has been met with mixed reactions.
Some readers have labelled it as "freaky" while others have said it comes as no surprise in a country with strong religious roots.
