There’s nothing quite as disconcerting as the thought of a baby in a plastic box. Oh wait, yes there is. Seeing a baby in a plastic box. Walking through Toys ‘R’ Us this afternoon I literally gasped at these extremely bizarro, life-like dolls. In plastic boxes. Yours for about R1500 (about 170 Euros). I stood there for a couple of minutes wondering how none of the Kugel moms with prams and Louis Vuittons were appalled, calling Carte Blanche and their psychiatrists. I seemed to be the only person who stood and stared like there was a horrific car accident or a fat person stuck in a hoola hoop. Somewhere between Cabbage Patch Dolls and Bratz Dolls, life got a little surreal.
