Parents are expressing their disappointment and anger after unwrapping LOL Surprise dolls for their children only to discover the boy dolls have genitals.
Toy manufacturer MGA Entertainment, the company behind Bratz, released male dolls to encourage boys to play with dolls.
But many parents took to social media to say they were shocked after seeing male dolls have sculptured testicles and penis in the genital region while female dolls have a hole.
“Why the f*** do the male LOL Surprise dolls have male genitals!?!? And detailed af too!?!?” one parent wrote on Twitter.
“Very inappropriate for a toy that states ages 3+. We won’t be buying anything LOL again,” another wrote.
“Considering the majority of your consumers are little girls, I suggest this change IMMEDIATELY. Such a HUGE fail; please keep the genital area FLAT,” someone else said.
The company explained that the new kid-appropriate feature has been added to reflect reality.
Isaac Larian, the CEO of MGA Entertainment’s, said to Fabulous Digital: “All of our LOL Surprise boy dolls have been (and will continue to be) anatomically correct.
“We believe in the importance of clarity and authenticity with our products and our consumers, and this approach has been carried through all of our products over the past 40 years.
“In the doll category, anatomically correct dolls have been available for many years.
“We currently have a notification on all packaging, and even on our web copy that states the LOL Surprise! boys are anatomically correct.”
Some parents were angry at the design but many don’t see the problem, with one writing: “Parents are offended by body parts? There’s nothing offensive about this, teach your kids proper terms and that yes, there ARE difference.”
