The worst toys for girls - sexist, racist and down right wrong!
Oreo Barbie Doll
What are you thinking?
I think that toy selection says a lot about one's parenting skills. Are you choosing toys just because everyone else has one or are you choosing toys that you think will help your child develop into the best person they can be?
Children, be it humans, chimpanzee or puppies learn through play. Its the parents who are responsible for the child's self image, direction and education not the toy industry or Disney movies. The latest crop of toys for girls from the toy industry seems to say that we as a society value prostitutes and Paris Hilton's over decent human beings. If you yourself are a pole dancer, hooker or party girl and want that life for your child, then by all means buy these ridiculous toys but for people who want something more substantial for their girls, just say no to the toy industry.
