2009 TOADYS!

From the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood:

On February 15, the Toy Industry Association will gather to present their TOTY (Toy Of The Year) Awards. But first, in honor of the industry that has led the way in commercializing childhood, CCFC will present its inaugural TOADY (Toys Oppressive And Destructive to Young Children) Award for the worst toy of the year. From thousands of toys that promote violence and/or precocious sexuality to children and push branded entertainment at the expense of children’s play, CCFC has sele
cted five exceptional finalists. Who will win the dreaded TOADY? It’s up to you.

Vote here! Voting is open until February 11 and the winner will be announced on February 12, 2009.

(BTW, I voted for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader Barbie. How about you?)

I just voted for the cheerleader too, ugh.

I love how her waist looks like mine. Just kidding. That's pretty bad.


How did you scroll past the Fisher Price Escalade to get to the Barbie? I saw that and started hunting for the vote button.

It was a hard choice between the Barbie and the Escalade, but in the end the feminist in me won out over the environmentalist in me. Gooooo Barbie!

That's what I voted for! One of the most evil things about it is that some people would see it and not even think twice about buying it. Maybe it should come with a video of the reality show, for a double dose of yuck.

Besides her slutty clothes, did you see her price tag? You have got to be kidding me! Who are these people?!
