Controversy over diaper change boy doll sold at Toys R Us because it has life-like genitals

Baby dolls have long been peeing 'like a real baby' since the 1930's but Toys "R" Us is now selling a doll with a realistic looking genitals--and it's upsetting some shoppers who think it's 'unnecessary.'

The toy is made by the company You & Me Change My Diaper Doll collection at Toys "R" US and it not only cries when it's wet, it pees from an anatomically correct penis.

The Huffington Post reports that some parents are outraged and think that the toy should at least come with a 'warning' label.

 

Others think that the doll's anatomy could be a learning experience for children and doesn't need to be perceived as sexual.

Monica Beyer, a writer at SheKnows.com, thinks the doll is an appropriate toy for children.

'How on earth is it inappropriate for a child to see a naked baby? What about a baby makes a penis or a vulva dirty or sexual?' Beyer writes.

'The truth is, when a child points out the body part that she doesn't have, all a parent is required to do is call it by its name, ' she continues.
