Introducing the Breast Milk Baby.
This new doll includes a halter top for children to wear, with two flowers that symbolize breasts. When the doll's mouth is placed close to the flowers, it makes a sucking sound indicating that it is drinking milk. In addition, the doll continues to cry after "breastfeeding" until it is burped.
The doll was created by Berjuan Toys, a Spanish toy manufacturer, to simulate the breastfeeding process. Dennis Lewis, an American representative for the toy company explains, "the whole purpose behind a doll is to pretend like you’re a parent." He went on to say, "the dolls are meant to just let kids play as mommies and daddies naturally.”
There have been mixed reviews on the new doll. What do you think? Would you purchase one for your child?
