LOS ANGELES -- A Spanish-made baby doll that imitates life, perhaps a little too well, is causing stir with some folks who think the toy maker has gone too far. Berjuan's "Bebe Gloton," which means "gluttonous baby," comes with a special halter top that girls can wear when they want to breast-feed the infant. The top is equipped with flower-shaped "nipples" to make the process seem more realistic. The baby also makes sucking noises while pretend feeding.Critics who spoke to KTLA called the doll "strange" and "too sexual. "One woman thought it was a joke. "There's playing house too. You wouldn't make a doll to show you how you make the babies," she said. Another woman agreed. "I think that kids can play out breast feeding without having a doll that explicitly characterizes that. "Some laughed it off and at least one person thought the baby was harmless. "I think it's o.k., actually," she said. Supporters say the doll is a great teaching tool and shows young girls a very natural and healthy way to nurture a baby. Still most people say they feel the doll is not age-appropriate. Bebe Gloton is sold in Spain.
