Encouraging Human Nature Or A Step Too Far?
We have ALL seen those dolls that can cry, that can poop but have you seen the doll that can breastfeed? Berjuan released a doll a few years back that claims to be the first breastfeeding doll. It is available in the UK and can be found over at Amazon for just £25.15 delivered here*
After stumbling across this doll, I wanted to investigate a bit more because I found it very unusual that this doll has been on the market for years yet I have never, ever heard of it. I came across a video that shows the advert for the doll, which contains a LOT of breast(feeding) for those that are are a bit prudish.
I was not surprised to see an array of people saying the doll is disgusting, since a minority of people still link breasts to sex and not to their natural role in life. Personally, I breastfed all three of my children for a significant amount of time, and for that reason I don't find this doll offensive or inappropriate. However, it does unsettle me a bit, and I don't know why.
One things for sure, this doll should be famous, but it's not even thought it's one of a kind. Is breastfeeding really that taboo that a doll can be pushed to the back of the toy market?
