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
