Pole Dancing Doll Makes Our Heads Spin

By jeannesager |

pole-dancing-dollThanks to Gizmodo, a million parents of little girls will not be sleeping tonight. Instead they’ll be envisioning how to keep their daughters off the pole.

Because word is out that a “Pole Dance” doll made specifically for kids is out on the market just waiting to be wrapped up and dropped under the Christmas tree . . . in a bordello. 

The girl shockingly is wearing a significant amount of clothing – posing the legitimate (albeit unlikely) chance that this could be a case of marketing gone wrong. She could really just be a little girl dancing in a circle a la the ballerina on top of your old music box.

OK, probably not, but it would make us feel better.

More likely, this is playing off the sexualization of American kids in hopes that the same parents who buy nipple tassels for toddlers will pay up for an “ironic” pole dancing doll. After all she goes “up and down” and “round and round.” Want to bet you could add the words “the block” to the box and ship this off to Spencer’s?

Who knew we’d actually find dolls that make Bratz look old-fashioned and wholesome?

Do you think this is a sick joke or absolutely hilarious?

    According to Chris Rock, it’s the *Daddy’s* job to keep his little girl off the pole. Anyway, I’m going to choose to believe this is a gag… and thank my lucky stars that I have a boy!

  14. foxy says:

    Comments Man this is CRAZY!…Whoever thought of this, are they advertising it’s ok to be a poledancer for your profession?..UGH, people!

  15. Lisa says:

    Love it! I only wish they had this out when I was a kid!! Umm, not sure why people are so offended when so many parents let their little girls run around dressed like little sluts (??)

  16. Rasheedah Sabreen says:

    I blame stuff like this on all those who actually purchased “Pet Rocks” during the 80s(?). That sales campaign let the world know that the consumers of the United States will drop dollars,literally, for anything.

  17. Rasheedah Sabreen says:

    One more thing!This to all those parents of boys on here who think they are in the clear. NOT! Next vacation visit Babylon by the Bay aka San Francisco. Are you really naive enough to think there won’t be a “boy” version of this or that boys won’t see this? Got Reality?

  18. Rasheedah Sabreen says:

    Ok,so where is the pole dancing Barbie? At least she is built for this profession since she is modeled after the oldest profession of all anyone! I am done. Well, this will probably do better than the pregnancy doll which could only deliver by removing the detachable abdomen section.

  19. taylor says:

    haha oh dear.. i am curious to see how this sells

  20. Thinkaboutit says:

    Instead of getting up in arms about something first do a little research. Honestly I thought it was an awesome idea and wanted to get one for my sis in law as a joke but was unable to find a supplier or manufacturer. So it it is a joke and relax folks just like everything else if you don’t buy it the product will go away. Lighten up folks!
