For God's sake, look at this scary pretend baby. What the heck is it for? Who is it for? What on earth was wrong with Tiny Tears? She had a lovely head of hair and a beautiful complexion and was in my opinion far better than this sinister mottled creature.
I used to carry my baby doll by the leg. What if I'd been bought a scary pretend baby as a child? There would have been an awful incident reminiscent of the time my seven year old brother purchased some fake cigarettes. My poor father was oblivious to my brother hanging out the back of the car puffing away until he wondered why people were glaring at him from the pavement and looked into the back of the car to see what shame his only son had brought on the Clairwil family name.
Obviously this was in more enlightened times and the family laughed like drains at the busy bodies. I have no doubt there would be an inquest nowadays.
