Toy Company 'Milks' Baby Doll Idea


As if parents don't have a hard enough time explaining to their kids the intricacies of the human body and the finer points of the extracurricular activities of the birds and the bees, along comes a new doll that could leave children with a host of new questions for mom and dad. 

Berjuan Toys has announced plans to bring one of its top-selling international dolls, The Breast Milk Baby, to the U.S. market. The doll simulates the breast-feeding process by including a halter top that a young girl wears like a vest.  Two flowers on the halter are appropriately positioned and when the doll’s mouth is brought close to the flowers’ embedded sensors, the baby makes suckling sounds.

If this is the alternative, parents might start thinking those American Girl dolls don’t seem so pricey anymore.
