How Cute! A Pole Dancing Doll For Your Little One!
Thanks to Vanessa over at Feministing for alerting us to this one. We wrote about the pink pole dancing kit "mistakenly" put in the girls' section of a London toy department. There's no mistaking this Tiny Dancer's blinking lights, disco ball, and pole -- it's clearly targeting little girls. But before we all start blogging up a storm, let's figure out if this is a hoax, who makes the doll, if it's for real, and whether or not it's sold as a toy or in toy stores. If we can't, let's stick with the reality that's scary enough (see Miley Cyrus post) and remember that it's not just one toy or one show, but the accumulation of these images that little girls see over time.
