Meet Bebe Gloton. It's a baby doll who breastfeeds.
I think my head just exploded.
I realize that Americans tend to be a little more uptight about having any kind of sex talk with their kids. And I am way far away from the conservative line. However, apparently the toy makers in Spain have me beat by a liberal mile, with putting this doll out there that even comes with a halter top for your child to wear so that she can "feed" the doll. Oh yes, the baby even makes sucking noises as it's pressed to your child's chest.
I'm all about informing my girls about their bodies and having an open line of communication about any questions that might come up surrounding babies, but I have to draw the line at enabling my elementary school-aged child the ability to pseudo-feed an infant by means other than a bottle.
I guess I'm not as liberal minded as I thought.
How about you? Would you buy this doll for your child? What other fun toys can we expect to see next?
