But they don't have fingers!

Doll sets come complete with underwear, clothes and shoes. Ethnic doll sets may not have shoes.

I saw the picture of the "birth doll" before reading the explanation for it. I really had no idea what I was looking at.

You are such a racist bastard, Mr. Hat

LOL, I wasn't sure what kind of mischief would come up with this post, "anatomically correct" but no fingers is funny. They don't have ears, toes or belly buttons either. Thanks thirteenkiller for the chuckle. It doesn't feel right that the ethnic dolls have no shoes. Anatomically and politically incorrect. The fact is I like these dolls, think they're beautifully made and that they'd be great for kids. They're not cheap though. An "anatomically correct" pair of grandparents is $129.00.

My mom was a therapist when I was a kid.

There were catalogs just for therapists that sold all sorts of shit like this.

It was REALLY creepy.

The last one I saw had a lot of clip art that should not have been produced.

Think anatomically incorrect children make them in a sweatshop?

Why are the asian dolls grey?

I'd like to order a anatomically correct ethnic doll giving birth.It's, err, for a friend.

Where are the anatomically correct hermaphrodite dolls? I bet the transsexual dolls come with velcro genitals.

The Caucasian Father doll is listed as being "Big enough for your child to handle, hug, dress and undress." Gives more meaning than is needed to Who's your daddy?

This isn't new at all - they've had these as long as I've been alive, at least. I'm a bit baffled at this post.

'Tis not new to thee, to misquote Bill Shakespeare. I have been amused by the post and Mefi-reactions. They have lightened my weary load.

Anatomically correct Grandmother doll. A 16"-tall adorable grandma cloth doll.

And, ...No. Grandma is not pregnant!

Thank God for small favors.

"On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue... The wise man... rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains."
cklennon, I can certainly think of worse advice...

I absolutely think that anatomically correct dolls are appropriate toys, but there have got to be less creepy ones than these. These are just kinda oooky!
