Bratz Big Babyz: Baby Doll Or Blow-Up Doll?
"Just after the wrapping paper hit the floor on Christmas, Kendra Toodle-Register was suffering buyer's remorse. She and her husband bought their 4-year-old daughter, Dejah, a Bratz Big Babyz doll named Sasha. They'd done so advisedly. They know the Bratz line of dolls are dressed provocatively, but the Babyz togs are at least a little toned down. In the box, Sasha, with her perky pigtails and almond eyes, looked adorable.
That's the packaging. Out of the box, Dejah turned the doll over and discovered that beneath the khaki green skirt (and baby bottle attached to a bling chain), Sasha was wearing a thong. That's right. A black mesh one."
So are the executives who think up these products & entertainment for children stupid, without morals, or both?
Of course, the argument can be made that these dolls are actually supposed to be younger versions of the teen Bratz girls -- that "Babyz" is simply a euphemism for "younger."
Indeed, while this line was originally called "Baby Bratz," it is now called "Bratz Big Babyz."
So instead of six months, I think one could say these dolls are really more like six years. Or even seven. Isn't that great?
