What’s worse than the Tokidoki Barbie?

Have you heard about the Tokidoki Barbie?

Tokidoki doll

Designed by the LA fashion group of the same name, the edgy new collector’s item from Mattel sports a bright pink bob and prominent neck and shoulder tattoos – and it’s causing quite a stir among parents. Despite the fact that the $50 doll is said to be aimed at adult buyers, guardians the world over fear that the loud new ‘toy’ is sending the wrong message to impressionable children.

We’re reserving out judgment on the doll, but it does remind us of some other truly strange children’s products that have crossed the FADI desk – and which are yet to catch the attention of concerned carers.

So in the spirit of Friday afternoon, here’s our guide to what not to buy your tots this holiday season.

 

Ouch!

Na Zha Cradle

The Na Zha Cradle, from the boutique’s outrageously unsafe line of stainless steel baby furniture.

 

The Baby Cage

The baby cage

This frightening wire contraption, which allowed inner city parents to store their children outside city windows, was patented in the US in 1922.

 

And we’ve heard of baby mobiles, but…

From Mommysentials: “The Babykeeper Basic is an infant carrier style seat, that hangs from the stall wall in most public restrooms, and can also be used in many public fitting rooms and locker rooms.”

    I’m going to have a child JUST so I can get the Na Zha Cradle for it. The baby may or may not look like Chucky from Child’s Play.
