Is It Just Me Or...


I know these things have been out for a while, but it just finally sunk in. So, is it me or do these things look a bit...mmmmm, not right? I actually had to get one of these for my niece for Christmas and when I put this damn thing in my cart, I instantly felt like Chris Hanson from Dateline NBC was going to pop out and start asking me a bunch of awkward questions. I know this is what she wants, but damn!
Far be it for me to say this, but if these things were twice their normal size, they'd be in an adult bookstore (the one pictured is 2ft tall). I actually read on the box that it was for ages 4 and up. What the deuce, man! This is soft porn for pedophiles. I can't be alone in thinking this, can I?

No, there's a large trend toward sexually suggestive items for children.

Certainly does nothing to help with the body image of young girls. The age of onset of anorexia keeps getting younger and younger. And Halloween costumes for younger girls keep getting trampier and trampier. It's definitely not a toy I'd want my daughter to play with.

Oh no, you are not alone. I blogged about this over a year ago. My daughter loves these toys, but I have objections. She has received some from others, but we do not buy them for her. Not all of them are scantily clad, and those are the ones that she gets. I still do not like it, but we have a compromise.
