Baby Wee Wee: The Anatomically Correct, Little Boy, Baby Doll. Thoughts?
(Commercial Video Included.)
My twin pops are 28 months & 1 week old.
Wow! When I watched the little video that I added below, it honestly looked like the commercial was part of a silly joke for a Mad TV skit or something. Is it not true to life? It surely is. Is it relatable to moms of boys like I have diapered two of myself? It absolutely is. Do I agree with it being sold in stores for our children to play with? No I don’t. Why?
I believe we should keep the next generation as innocent as possible for as long as possible. Even if that means unanatomically correct Barbie Dolls and baby dolls. Some things need no explanation, and these added appendages aren’t necessary in order to enjoy playing mommy. I remember doing just fine with my Cabbage Patch Dolls as a tyke. I never wondered why my boys and girls looked the same ‘down there’, did you?
While this isn’t really ‘bad’ because it’s real, it isn’t something I would want my child to have, or something I think should be shown on public television via commercial. Hey, we managed to make it to adulthood quite normally without such detailed dollies, why wouldn’t our own children? They find things out for themselves soon enough, why rush it?
I mean if a child has a baby brother they obviously have seen how boys differ from girls already. But even if that is so, they don’t yet need to know how to take care of a fake baby’s willy at 4 years old, or get squirted with pseudo pee in the face by a plastic, robotic penis. It’s just a bit much in my opinion.
I think toy companies should keep things simple and uncontroversial, don’t you? I just can’t help but wonder, ‘What’s next?’ Tampon inserting Barbie? A teenage doll that gets her menses and shows tween and maybe even younger girls how to insert and wear a tampon correctly. That may seem very extreme, but can anybody say that in a few years that would honestly shock the heck out of them? Not the way we are going with the realism here.
Watch the commercial for yourself. Baby Wee Wee has apparently been around for awhile now, but I just came across it yesterday, and spoke to someone who saw it in the store for herself and was quite shocked. Tell me what you think about it. Nobody can deny that it’s true to life. Maybe even a tad funny to us mothers of boys in parts. (One in particular.) But should such a product be in the hands of our own young, little children? THAT is the question. What is next is only a matter of time my friends, whether this product was a fail or not.
The dad is a bit disturbing here, no? Something is off.
**I believe this is a UK product and is not easily available, as per my own searching. But the concept of bettering toys to the point of real-life(ism) if you will, continues on. SCARY! Soon we’ll have walking, talking, clones of ourselves dolls. Watch out next generation.**
