Toys “R” Us has on its shelves an anatomically correct baby doll for males that has sparked controversy. The doll is called a You & Me Mommy Change My Diaper Doll. THe problem is the package doesn’t indicate that it is anatomically correct doll, neither does the company website so you can imagine how surprised the shoppers were!
Society as a whole is used to dolls having no genitalia at all. Though there have been a few of them the first hitting the shelves in 1976 and it was an Archie Bunker’s Grandson Joey Stivic doll. A few of those may still be lurking on eBay.
Personally I don’t think there is anything wrong with the doll – but I do think the package should indicate what it is. So that way any parent who finds it offensive doesn’t have to buy it. Children are going to learn about their bodies at some point, why not at home?
