Baby Fat: Lots to Love Doll
I was at the toy store and I saw a baby doll called Lots to Love. When I saw the slogan "It's just baby fat," my fear was confirmed. It's a fat baby doll. That, to me, is deeply disturbing. In an age where obesity is an epidemic among children, and we're struggling to get them to exercise and eat right, along comes the Lots to Love doll. Telling them fat babies are cuter than healthy babies. What if the kids decide that being overweight would make them cute, too? That just bugs me.
