There are many strange toys for children, but none are as weird as this . . . The “Breast Milk Baby” doll will be hitting a store near you. This doll, created by Berjuan Toys in Spain, allows little girls to learn all about breastfeeding.
For only $89, your daughter can put on a special halter-top that has a flower “nipple” on both sides. She holds the little baby, one of the dolls is named “Savannah,” up to the flower nipple, and the doll makes a suckling motion with her mouth. And Savannah makes suckling sounds during this process.
After your little girl is done feeding her doll, she can burp Savannah, so she can sleep safe and sound.
I’m all for breastfeeding, and I think that a doll that teaches children about breastfeeding is GREAT, but this doll disturbs me. Maybe the thought of a young girl holding a doll up to her breasts to “nurse” makes me cringe. Little girls shouldn’t be thinking about breasts… not like that… not yet.
Oh, and get this – the doll’s demographics are “boys and girls, two years and older.”
Well, ready or not. The “Breast Milk Baby” doll is headed to U.S. stores. According to the company’s website, , this doll has sold millions in Europe. They also claim that dozens of advocacy dolls have endorsed the doll.
