What will they think of Next?

Bebé Glotón

A Spanish toymaker known as Berjuan has developed a breast-feeding doll that comes with a special halter top its young "mothers" wear as they pretend to breast-feed their "babies." The halter top has daisies that cover the little girls’ nipples and come undone just as easily as the flaps of a nursing bra would.

The doll — called Bebe Gloton, which translates as “gluttonous baby” — makes sucking noises as it "feeds."

What will they think of next? What happened to dolls like the Cabbage Patch Kids? Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite?!

Would you buy this doll for your daughter? Personally, I would... but not until she's in her twenties! I understand they are trying to promote breastfeeding, but do they have to use a 5 year old to promote it? This doll should belong in a home economics class, not in kindergarten! Toys should be age appropriate, don't you think?

Noooo ni loca! supongo que hablas español verdad? Y no, definitivamente no se lo compraria, como dices tu, quizas cuando este mas grande...pero lo dudo.
Por supuesto estoy de acuerdo en breastfeed PERO no se lo inculcaria a mi hija TAN pequeña.
