Controversial Button Placement Gets Doll Pulled From Shelves

KFI: Most toys make their way from the store shelves into the homes of excited children without making any headlines, but then there are other toys that really rock the boat. Sometimes it’s because they reinforce gender roles, while other times it’s because it sounds like they are saying something profane. Well Hasbro’s Trolls World Tour “Giggle & Sing Poppy” doll is the latest to get pulled from shelves because of some negative press, and the reason behind it has to do with a rather unfortunately placed button.

The toy, which is for kids ages four and older, sings and giggles when Poppy’s stomach is pushed, and she also makes sounds when she sits down. That’s actually what caused the issue. In a video one mother posted on Facebook, she pointed out the problem. She calls the toy “disturbing” and shows how there is button between Poppy’s legs and when you push it, she makes sounds, like a gasp. The mom says, “I know some of you may not think this is a big deal, but especially since I’ve had kids, this is wrong.” more

  1. Back in ’97 (?) I went out and bought one of those Teletubby Po dolls that says, “Faggot, Faggot. Bite my butt.” There is NO WAY it says, “Faster, Faster. Slower, slower” as the company claims. Needless to say, we have had a lot of fun with it at get togethers.

  2. I agree with the mother. Does the manufacturer hire degenerates to design little children’s toys? I recall a controversy years ago with Disney animators incorporating phallic symbols into the cartoon drawings. Pervert’s are everywhere.
    Not only everywhere but they [thanks to the leftists} are a protected species.

  3. Damn, is that were the button is. I wish I’d have known. I’ve been pushing the wrong button all these years.

    Isn’t this a normal everyday occurrence when one reaches a certain mature age?
    I was in the drug store yesterday and a little old lady was just farting away with nary a care what anyone thought. In my youth I would’ve crossed to another aisle to contain my laughter.
    Now I just said, “excuse my reach, just need to grab some antacid”.

    Whoever designed and whoever approved the design should be hit tell they make noise.
