Is this REALLY what we want to teach our children?

So I was playing with Lacey today while Lil was in preschool and noticed something a bit odd about her little sit and ride car. Just thought I would share it with you as well!

Here is the front of the car thingy (and my naked kid) complete with a sticker showing two people buckled into their seatbelts. That is GREAT! What a good (though subtle) way to teach kids to buckle seatbelts!

Now for the left side of the car. Wait a second- is that... it is! A woman putting on makeup and looking in a mirror! I thought you were supposed to be DRIVING! Hmmm... maybe this toy was manufactured in one of those countries where the driver is on the right...

So the right side of the car. Um... yeah, not a lot better. This lady is doing her HAIR! What a great thing for someone to be doing in the car! Here's to hoping they are back seat passengers!

That's so funny! I probably would have never noticed something like that.

The things you might find on toys if you really start looking at them all. That is pretty funny I don't think I would have even thought twice about that.
