Breastfeeding doll 1
We all know breastfeeding is a great and healthy practice for moms and babies...but I have to admit I think a breastfeeding doll targeted towards young girls is just weird. This one even makes makes suckling noises!
Farting doll 2
Manafactured in Korea, this doll eats from a little plate of food and goes in a little toilet, (both extra accessories which can be bought separately) and turns red when she lets out a little gas! My question is...why?
Pregnant doll 3
Okay, technically this isn't a toy, it's "art"...but it's a toy-like doll that comes in a toy box, with instructions, so I think calling it a toy isn't too far of a stretch. Whatever it is, this thing is CREEPY. The doll itself is not only pregnant (complete with stretch marks and water that really breaks), but it's supposed fetus is pregnant too! Huh?!
Dart Zone Quick Fire 5
This toy made it on the top 10 List of Worst Toys 2012 released by World Against Toys Causing Harm and for good reason! The ads essentially encourage children to load the gun's ammunition cartridge and fire "6 darts in seconds." And despite the fact that the manufacturer’s asked that this toy not be sold for children younger than 6 years old, it was marketed online for babies as young as 7 months old. HELLO?! Just a little dangerous, no?
Laugh and Learn Apptivity Monkey 6
The Apptivity Monkey is an interactive learning toy that "lets babies enjoy their very own apps on mom or dad's iPhone or iPod touch!" Sounds harmless enough...except that it's recommended age is 6 months and up. Why do 6-month-olds need to be playing with iPhones?!
The Walking Dead RV Zombie action figure. 7
This action figure is supposedly for ages 13 and up...but it's SO gory! Not only does the Zombie Man have a knife in his eye, but the toy has a "neck snapping action." Yuck! Plus, isn't The Walking Dead kind of a grown-up show? I can't say I know any 13-year-olds that watch it!
The Logo Board Game 8
This game is perfect...if you want to expose your child to further advertising and drill annoying taglines into their head.
Stylin' Studio - Girl Tech 9
This touchpad console allows girls to get "digital makeovers." They can change their hairstyles and makeup among other things...but isn't 8 years old a little young to start enforcing the "Photoshop is your best friend" mentality?
