Lactating for Little Girls: A New Baby Doll Teaches Kids How to Breastfeed (!)

Obviously, girls must be taught at a young age that their most important role in life is being a mother. But, since they can't actually reproduce before they grow functional ovaries and start releasing ovum, there has always been a multitude of weird, anachronistic toys to help them prep for the real thing. (And yes, despite feminism and stuff, these toys are always targeted at little future mommies instead of little future daddies.)


It's creepy enough seeing a tiny kid dragging a dead-eyed plastic baby around. But here's something waaay creepier! A Spanish toy company has introduced a baby doll that breastfeeds.

According to the how-to video, the little girl straps a halter with fake petal-covered nipples to her chest. The abomination, called "Baby Gluton", cries until the girl arranges it next to her chest, where it proceeds to very loudly suckle at her weird plastic pasty. Creepy video after the jump:
