Okay, so granted, there were some really cute toys and clothes featured in the magazine; but the toddler models really disturbed me. They were these totally hip, attitude wearing kids that probably knew more about life than I did, the girls wearing bright makeup and hailing cabs in the pictures, the boys looking like James Dean with their turned up collars and leather jackets. I wish that I could post some pics, but I can't find any.
The second issue I had was a lot of the toys were just, well, too hip, too modern, too grown up. Here's an example:
I mean, who buys these kinds of ride-along toys for their toddlers? I am all for the simple, no bells and whistle type toys because I think they allow children to use their imagination, but this is just, well, it sucks the joy out of my soul when I look at it.
Anyway, I guess I should have known better than to pick up a magazine that had the words baby and couture bunched together like that, but still.
I will add that there were some cute toys in there, like these:
(note- the lamb rocker can be found at http://www.babystyle.com/ and the sock puppy at http://www.sok-o.com/)
Anyway, so that's that.
