Toy Story

Margi has an excellent rant on the subject of the new Eeyore-on-Prosac.

Meanwhile, I've been facing my own toy issue. The Llama-ettes have a Dora the Explorer doll. The thing is about a foot tall and lives in the basement. Lately, when I've been watching tee vee late at night, I'd swear it's been staring at me with malice in its eyes:


"Hola! Can you help me carve up Papa? You can? Fantastico!"

I, for one, am starting to get seriously creeped out.

UPDATE: Of course, if this shows up at the Butcher's House, I'll know that I've lost and that Dora might just as well put me out of my misery:

Bling Bling Barbie

Yips! to K-Lo in the Corner.

UPDATE DEUX: And just to show more of what parents of young girls are up against, allow me to direct your attention to Club Libby Lu. This is a place at the mall where girls can get "make-overs" as rock stars and the like and then are encouraged to "perform" for people strolling by. The eldest Llama-ette recently was invited to a Libby Lu birthday party. Fortunately, we already had a commitment for that afternoon, but if we hadn't, I'd have unhesitatingly invented one.

Have you seen the episodes where Dora introduces Boots to llama meat?


Yum. Yum.

And while we're on the subject, why does that monkey wear boots without socks?

That seriously bothers my sensibilities.

That looks more like Slutty McHoochie Barbie to me.

*lmaorofl* at this entire comment section.

I'm happy to report that, until recently, I had no idea this Dora thing existed.

Now that I've seen the show, I think she makes Barney look like just another kids' show.

Help me. I'm SO NOT READY for another round of kids' shows!!

And yeah: I knew that the Barbie said "Math is hard!" but I didn't realize that this new career track included "Table Dancer Barbie"

Robert, if Bling Bling shows up at your house, pack the girls off to a nunnery until they're 18, er 21, er 30.
