Scary!

You know, I remember being little and collecting toys like My Little Pony or Little Pretty Kitties and wondering, particularly with the latter, where all that hair came from.

I mean, at least ponies had manes and tails to brush. But cats? Not so much. Still, they were fun at the time, and only eye-roll-inducing in retrospect.

Of course now Ami's posted a link to this.

Let's look at one shall we?



Or how about these, which came out around the time I was still working in the toystore:



I'll grant that at least they don't have long flowy hair...but um, I don't really think mascara on a cat is much better.

It's really kind of horrendous isn't it?

    Makeup and anorexia go hand in hand with popularity and self confidence, afterall. Nothing like starting early to reinforce the notion that YOU MUST LOOK LIKE A SUPERMODEL TO BE ATTRACTIVE.

    Those toys are frightening.

    Wow, they've made teenaged-slut dolls, they've made pre-teen-slut dolls, they've made baby-slut dolls, now they've made a horse-slut doll. Up next: bear-slut dolls, elephant-slut dolls, amoeba-slut dolls, and a kit for tarting up rocks in the backyard.

    Nevermind the makeup, why is that horse wearing platform shoes?

    Umm... why does that horse appear to be anorexic?

    Yus centurion :( We must start them young. And if they happen to like horses and ponies instead of dolls, we gotta show them what's important in life there too!
