Breastfeeding Doll Creates Stir
There’s a new toy on the market….a doll that breastfeeds and some people say it’s too advanced for little girls who haven’t yet formed breasts. ABC news says the doll is called “Breast Milk Baby”, from Berjuan Toys and sells on Amazon.com for over a hundred dollars. Children imitate breastfeeding by wearing a special bib with a sensor embedded in a flower which serves as a nipple. When the doll’s mouth is brought close, the doll makes motions and sounds consistent with with suckling. The toymaker faced a lot of criticism. Just my own personal opinion it’s just another ‘let’s see what the public will buy’ toy and it may be the pricetag, rather than the “too much too soon” factor that makes me back off from buying this. But you know, things could be worse…..at least it’s not a Barbie. Whew!
