This just in: Padded bikinis for children are a bad idea! The kid's pole dancing kit though - I kind of like it!

It appears that I am not the only one that finds bikinis on little girls disturbing - although it seems not for the same reason.  I was just reading an article on BBC.com about how Primark has withdrawn their range of padded bikini tops for girls as young as seven - and I just had to laugh - what kind of moronic parent is buying their 7 year old a padded bra top?!  Not that I don't see lots of overdeveloped kids these days thanks to whatever the crap it is they put in food - but seriously, companies make lots of stupid things, that's no reason to buy it!  Of course everyone is screaming "premature sexualisation" and blaming Primark, but really isn't it the parent's own fault for buying their girls something so ridiculous in the first place?  Can you really blame a company for trying to make a (misguided) buck...  I've never considered the corporate world my moral compass.

And just when I thought it couldn't get funnier they started talking about other questionable items that were pulled by companies including - get this - a toy Pole-dancing kit!
Tesco pulled this kit from their toy section after what I can only assume were complaints and not because they were making too much money off it.  Can you imagine the awkward silence on Christmas morning after this is unwrapped by your sister's kids?!  If you never want your sister to speak to you again you should have a hunt for this great gift idea!  And just think, little Sally who really seems kind of dim, well who are we kidding, she'll never make it to university - she could get an early start on her inevitable career!

  1. there are no words... i think bikinis on babies are cute (coz their little tummies stick out!) but i think it probably just makes kids think it's ok to wear a bikini. and really, a 10 year old wearing a bikini (to me) is NOT ok!


  2. LOL Dani, actually the tummy stick out thing is exactly what I hate about 2 pieces on little kids - there is something about it that just yucks me out - can you tell I don't have kids! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. I agree! When I first saw this, I couldn't even comprehend what was going on. I do know one thing--I will not be purchasing either of those things for my children!!! lol

  4. Ew I agree, I find bikinis on little kids creepy. They're not old enough to have any womanly features to show off, so I dont think they need it. Plus, their tummies sticking out kinda grosses me out, and the tops just don't sit right :|

    But OMG LOL what was going through the heads of R&D when they thought of creating a kiddy pole dancing kit? XD
