Bratz Belt Too Suggestive?


If you saw a girl wearing a belt with a buckle that says "Enter," what would you think? You know, right above that bit of anatomy that teenage boys are always trying to figure out to get into? Yeah, that's what I'd be thinking too. And if that belt were an accessory to an already trashy outfit? Now suppose that girl were a doll -- a Bratz doll, to be specific.

 

(Watch video on this page .)

That's what Victoria Staley, a mother from Orlando, FL, is dealing with now. She bought her 7-year-old daughter a Bratz doll but didn't notice the sexually suggestive belt buckle until after her daughter fell in love with it. Now it's her favorite doll. Then her daughter asked about it. "She's like, 'Why does it say Enter?' What am I supposed to do?"

Staley called the manufacturer but was told that the belt was designed that way on purpose. "The way he was explaining, it's supposed to be like a seat belt," Staley said. "Like how a seat belt in a car has enter, you enter the seat belt. I'm like, 'Well, you're still entering.'"

Personally, I wouldn't buy my kids Bratz dolls even if the buckle said "Study hard." But, I guess for some people, trashy is okay, but only to a point. Where would you put down your foot?

Mom Says Doll Has 'Sexually Suggestive' Message


A local mother who got a Bratz doll for her daughter said on Friday that she noticed something inappropriate on her child's new toy.

Victoria Staley said her daughter's doll's belt buckle reads "Enter."

"The belt buckle," Staley said. "She's like, 'Why does it say 'Enter?' What am I supposed to do?"

Staley said the word on the buckle is just too "sexually suggestive" for a 7-year-old's toy.

"She doesn't need to know about that," Staley said. "I don't think it's the right message for children at all."

She said if she had known the belt buckle said that, she wouldn't have bought the doll.

She said she took off the belt and let Breana keep her new Christmas present.

"She's in a band," Breana said. "She plays with her friends in a band."

Staley said that when she called the company, MGA Entertainment, a representative told her that the belt is supposed to be that way.

"The way he was explaining, it's supposed to be like a seat belt," Staley said. "Like how a seat belt in a car has enter, you enter the seat belt. I'm like, well, you're still entering."

Staley said the Bratz maker offered her a couple of free toys, but she said that's not enough.

"I just wasn't going to let it go," she said. "I don't want them making that doll anymore."
