This doll found at Toys R Us doesn’t advertise it but they baby is equip with an anatomically correct body part and for some reason it’s pissing off parents all over the place. That’s right, this baby boy doll has a penis. Now don’t cover your ears and eyes and run screaming from the room all at once. Seriously, this is a big deal… right?
Actually no, I don’t think it is. I never did understand why none of my dolls were full human beings. What does it say about our culture that we teach our children to pretend these parts don’t exist until they are 12 and too embarrassed to talk about it?
This doll is actually pretty cool, you can feed him and then he cries when he’s wet, then you can change his little diaper. What’s so wrong with that? A child isn’t going to see it as sexual, he or she will be taking care of their baby boy like grown ups do. You might have to just suck it up and explain to your child that boys have a penis and girls have a vulva. Welcome to parenthood.
