Pole Dancing Toy for Kids - Stripping away our Children's Innocence

When I was in primary school I found a playboy bunny boy badge hidden in my mommy's jewellry box. It was pink and I thought the bunny looked cute. I had no idea what that symbol represented, but I loved the brooch soooo much that I wore it in my primary school photographs. It was so long ago that I can't remember my mother's reaction when the finished photos arrived. There I was in my brown 'Raggedy Anne' dress with a pink sexualized symbol proudly displayed on my chest.

I heard another story from an aquaintance of mine describing her teenage daughters fascination with the playboy Bunny symbol and how she had it plastered all over her school bags, school books and mobile phone, etc. She said that she asked her teenage daughter if she knew what the symbol represented and she was answered with a shrug. Her mother explained to her that it was a symbol that represented the 'Playboy' pornographic magazine established in 1953 by Hugh Hefner.

Children's toys are becoming more and more 'sexualized' as toy manufacturers stoop to a marketing phenonenom called 'age compression.' This money-making idea targets kids who are growing more mature as the generations pass. Today's children aren't as interested in stuffed toys, but how could these people destroy the innocence of children? These adult-like products are made for children as young as six years old. The psychological damage that these products will cause is beyond belief and you can only hope that parents can recognise the long-term ramifications of such a trend. We need to make a stand and get these toy manufacturers to stop shaping and moulding our children in an unhealthy way. Visit the Alpha Mummy site below to find out more and add your voice.

Noone can verify whether the pole dancing doll is actually available for sale in the US, but why am I not suprised? It has a doll propped on a pole and rotates with blinking lights and a mirror ball. Tesco has also brought out a product called 'The Peekaboo dance pole.' Just the name of this toy makes me cringe.

Exactly how is pop culture contributing to the creation of these products? Get your answers here:
