The reason I'm wondering about this? My girls all seem to have some kind of "oral fixation." One wants to eat all the time. One chews on wads of paper or anything else she can get her mouth on. One maims Barbie dolls and other toys because of her oral habit.
Exhibit A: Normal Barbie
Exhibit B: Maimed Barbie
And while we're talking about rendering dolls quadriplegics, let's talk about other cruelty to toys, as we see in this example. Poor Buzz. He was minding his own business, when all of a sudden, he finds himself swaddled in a giant diaper. Can you imagine his shame?
Exhibit C: Humiliated Buzz Lightyear
I've found Polly Pockets tied up to bed posts, lain across railroad tracks, and even dismembered.
Maybe I should get my kids into therapy.
