Those Pussycats Are No Dolls
It was reported in today's news, that mega toy giant, Hasbro, has decided to shelve the idea of marketing a doll line in the image of each of the Pussycat Dolls. The scantily-clad Barbie-like dolls were to appear on toy shelves all over the country just in time for the Christmas season, but the line drew fierce resistance from parenting groups. The dolls are considered anti-family values all the way. As one group representative said, and I paraphrase "Imagine your six-year old mimicking developmentally inappropriate behavior" based on the role-modeling of these women. Hasbro caved in and the dolls have been shelved for good in a warehouse somewhere! Note to Hasbro: Next time you want to inspire your marketing reps for toy ideas, how about sending them to Disney World for inspiration instead of Vegas!
