Baby Dolls For Boys
Posted by Dave Blount at June 9, 2007 8:45 AM
It was only a matter of time until the politically correct prissification of boys that has featured restrictions on toy guns led to this:
French toymaker Corolle (a subsidiary of Mattel) has launched a campaign to encourage boys to play with dolls — and they sure don't mean G.I. Joes.
According to marketing director Mathilde Gailly, boys "like giving bottles and changing nappies."
Corolle is setting up workshops in Paris, featuring a nursery nurse of each gender to offer advice on how to feed, clothe, and bathe dolls.
I weep for the future.
