WTF??? Another toy targeted at very young girls! ~ Bebé Glotón ~ When held up to a special halter top with flower-shaped nipples, Bebé Glotón moves her mouth and makes suckling noises. Designed by a Spanish company to advocate breast-feeding, the product sparked controversy when it hit U.S. stores in 2012, with some calling Glotón healthy and others claiming she was harmful. Everyone seemed to agree that she was a far cry from Cabbage Patch.
☆ Artist Ethan Black ☞ I created this horrible and disturbing thing for an episode of Nashville's Creature Feature. I then did as I often do, I started making more and more and then I gave them away to friends and family. I also sold a few. My parents dog is afraid of the doll and that just makes it even scarier. It is always unnerving when an animal looks at an inanimate object and starts barking at it as if it is a threat. ☆
