Sindya N. Bhanoo for the NY Times reports:
"There’s a new doll entering the American toy market called the Breast Milk Baby. In addition to the doll, little girls (and boys) get a halter top that they can wear, with two flowers that symbolize breasts."As the doll’s mouth is brought to the flowers, it makes a sucking sound, as if it is drinking milk. Afterward, the doll cries until it is burped.“The whole purpose behind a doll is to pretend like you’re a parent,” said Dennis Lewis, the American representative for Berjuan Toys, the Spanish company that makes the dolls. “The dolls are meant to just let kids play as mommies and daddies naturally.”http://thebreastmilkbaby.com/ and this site has demonstration videos as well.
|The box says: el primer muneco lactante. If I were just translating blind I'd say it means the first lactating doll. And gloton translated from the Spanish means glutton or gluttonous. Another dictionary says it could mean gourmand. ;-)|
This goes for fashion dolls as well. Why not? Our dolls have breasts, nipples and butt cracks. Why are the vaginas and penises missing?
A much more interesting line of dolls comes from Amamanta Family dolls. Click on the picture below to go to their website and view the unique dolls they offer.
