Cougarz?


I was in Target last week when I came face-to-face with "Bratz Familiez (sic)" in the toy aisle. Now, you can buy a disturbingly tarted up child doll with her cougar mom in the same package. According to the product description, Yasmin and her mom Portia are "ready for a day of Bratz bonding." Slightly less creepy are Cloe and big sister Sonya, who is described as "a sassy brainiac." You can tell Sonya is smart because she wears glasses and comes with a miniature laptop.

You just can't make this stuff up.

I take it that you have not yet run across the creepiness that is Struts horse toys.

Oh My God, that is totally a cougar mom. She's like a "The Real Housewives of Wherever" character.

I can see it now, little girls worldwide will be playing out scenarios in which Portia steals Ken away to be her inappropriately aged paramour, leaving Barbie heartbroken and plotting revenge...

DTG, the horse is wearing HIGH HEELS? That toy is so wrong...

downtown guy said...

Yep, a horse in heels. Just what every little girl wants.

Oh my God. The horse. Is wearing. High-heeled sandals. And is that a PURSE? For what? The oats?!

Cigarettes and condoms, obviously.
