TESCO Peekaboo Toys

Well, a major manufacturer of childrens toys is in hot water. They are putting out a 'pole dancing kit' for young girls. I mean young .. like 6 years old. The advertisement for the young stripper-wannabes is .. 'bring out the sex kitten in you'.

1 - What parent would buy this for their children?
2 - What the heck was the toy manufacturer thinking?
3 - Seriously .. this is a lead in to child porn and sexual indoctrination. I have to wonder if there are pervs running that company.

Just in time for Christmas ... give your 6 year old daughter the Christmas gift of sexual tension and porn indoctrination.
It is now being marketed as a fitness accessory.

Oh .. and they sell peekaboo poker .. complete with pictures of little children playing the 'peekaboo poker' ... UGH!

Im no prude, and I dont object to strip teasing by and around consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes or at a strip joint.

But this is SICK. A toy that encourages little girls barely out of their diapers to engage in an activity that is wide aknowledged and accepted as a form of adult erotica? I mean, what kind of turds at these toy companies come up with this crap? Youre right flyers, one must wonder if there is some sort of pedophile conspiracy in toy and childrens clothing makers to come up with this crap. Are they trying to get kids sexualized and preped at an early age to make them more vulnerable to exploitation later? I honestly wouyld not doubt it. Its not just one or two little incidents, its a trend of childrens clothing makers and toy companies pushing outright sexuality on little kids.

I mean, its one thing if they made stuff like this for adults to enjoy. Nothing wrong with wanting to see your wife or girlfriend wiggle her way around a pole.

But a friggin 6 year old? a 10 year old?

THATS JUST F***ING SICK.

this wasnt aimed AT kids.....it just happened to be in the toy section of the website. Wish people would read things first. It is not a kit trying to entice 6 year olds into pole dancing....just was inappropriately categorised

EXACTLY. And the fact that these things - the pole dance kit and the peekaboo poker game - all directed at little children - got through the company; tells me that the company must be loaded with pervs. No one in their right mind would want to see this stuff sold let alone be part of marketing it.

Someone wants a fresh supply of oversexed 6 year olds out there to prey on.

Look at the picture on the product. It is pink .. it is for little girls. The picture on it is of a young girl . It DEFINATELY is aimed at children.


Wish people would read things first.

Wish you'd look at the product closely.

Again....these are ADULT toys, WRONGLY put in the toy section of a website. No conspiracy, no pedophilia....just a bad mistake.

oh don't me started with this


I blame the damn parents, especially the ones who let their little girls dress like skanks and buy them clothes that say "juicy" on the butt, wear makeup and act grown.

If this so called toy becomes popular, it's the parents and adults who buy them that are fault. As a mother, I have said NO to many toys and my kids have quickly gotten over it.

TESCO claims it is for ADULTS ONLY and the package is marked as such. However, the packaging of the products definatley look to be marketed towards young girls. Sorry .. but that's what many of us see. I'm sure that's what the young girls see as well.

Absolutely. Them most of all. But just the fact that the company puts these things out in brightly pink colored boxes with girlish coverings and makes it accessable as a toy .... that's sick.

are you freaking kidding me??....so its pink??....so what?....there are loads of stuff aimed at women, that come in pink.
The picture is not that of a litle girl at all....what are you looking at?

FYI, the Daily Mail is a bit sensationalist....and sure enough, they have run with this, and made people like you think Tesco (which is NOT a toy manufacturer, just a store)....invented a pole dancing kit for kids....jeez

yeah "Adults Only" but they had it in their "toys section"


look at the packaging
looks like stuff my under 13 nieces would buy.

As an adult, if I'm looking to play stripper, pink and green is not what what I'm looking for, and I certainly wouldn't be in the toy section.

Obviously we see this differently. As a mom of a 10 year old girl I know what she'd be attracted to. That packaging would be attractive to her.

Okay. I have no idea about 'the Daily Mail'. I'll make note of that ...

they didnt make it accessible as a toy.....it was on their WEBSITE, placed by mistake in the toys and games section. Look, i agree with the clothing some kids wear, being totally inappropriate....but you are making this out to be......"tesco marketing a pole dancing kit to 6 year olds"....and its NOT

And that pole looks awfully short to be something an adult would use. And the accessories look rather girlish .. pink and small.

Sorry geek .. I still see something packaged for young girls.

Wrong part of the cyber store? Maybe. But if it was for adults that would mean that even the store employees couldn't tell the difference that it was supposed to be for adults and not for children. Because it's marketed to look like a toy.

So either the employees were fooled like the rest of us .. or they put it where they were told to .. in the toy section for the children to want/buy.

Exactly..me too!!..I,d be looking for a range in black leather.with red velved trim and white lace... erm what I mean is.. ehhhmm..no!! what I meant was..Oh Heck

fair enough....i agree with the packaging thing....but the truth is, loads of "women adult" stuff comes in pink....and i do think thats weird, cos pink is usually for girls. I have a 9 yr old daughter and i get sick of pink stuff..lol
I even saw a world globe thing the other day...in pink

Because apparently, the old blue and green world is not "girly" enough.

So yeah, agree with the packaging. And now that i think about it more....who the hell put it in the toy section anyway?....that is strange.

It says the pole extends to 8'-6". Definitely for adults.

I agree with Alfred E. Newman that this was just an unfortunate mistake. That being said, I do think that kids are being targeted in a lot of things for the sole purpose of destroying the family unit, but this doesn't seem to be one of them.

Peace


edit to add: It looks like something I might buy...........err..........I mean someone might buy in a sex shop.

Actually, it looks like a lot of the cheap stuff you'd find in a Spencers store. At Spencers it would be categorized as a toy. It shouldn't even be sold in a department store.

I don't think this was aimed at children, just a mistake in placing it in the wrong area...

As far as the packaging it comes in... yeah it's pink and looks like a package that a toy might come in... but have you ever been to an "adult" store? I have and there are all kinds of different packaging... all colors including pink.

So again, this product was not to be sold to children, wasn't marketed that way, just a simple mistake...


upon further reading... this guy is a real dumb a...



Dr Adrian Rogers, of family campaigning group Family Focus said yesterday that the kit would "destroy children's lives".

He said: "Tesco is Britain's number one chain, this is extremely dangerous. It is an open invitation to turn the youngest children on to sexual behaviour.

"This will be sold to four, five and six-year olds. This is a most dangerous toy that will contribute towards destroying children's innocence."

He added: "Children are being encouraged to dance round a pole which is interpreted in the adult world as a phallic symbol.



how many 4 to 6 year olds do you know that shop, much less shop online...



and as always, lets read the entire article...


Tesco last night denied the pole dancing kit was sexually oriented and said it was clearly marked for "adult use".

A spokesman added: "Pole dancing is an increasing exercise craze. This item is for people who want to improve their fitness and have fun at the same time."
