Here Is Why Customers Were Shocked By This Toys 'R' Us Baby Doll (Photos)

Just what were they thinking? An anatomically-correct male baby doll has stirred up a major controversy.

The doll in question is one of the You & Me Mommy Change My Diaper Doll collection at Toys "R" Us. With another touch of realism, the male doll also cries when its underpants are wet like a real baby.

Of note, the doll is anatomically correct for a male baby, but this fact is not stated on the Toys “R” Us website or anywhere on the packaging.

The controversy about the new doll has grown as both sides can make reasonable arguments to support their point of view. Writing in online forums, several parents thought the doll was inappropriate for kids, and another sarcastically riffed it would be a unique way to kick off a "gender reveal" party. Other posters commented that the box should definitely have some kind of a warning label.

Also, keep in mind that this is actually not the first anatomically correct male doll to be sold in the US. Apparently, the first anatomically correct male doll can be traced back to 1976 with Archie's Bunker's Grandson Joey Stivic doll (available on eBay) also generating huge controversy when it was launched 40 years ago.
