Baby Glutton: What the Hell?

When I first saw the news item, I thought the doll was kinda creepy:

Spanish toy manufacturer, Berjuan, has introduced Bebe Gloton, purportedly the first-ever breast-feeding doll, for children to enjoy (and for toy stores to display next to the bottle-feeding babies). Translated Baby Glutton, it comes with a snazzy halter top for the doll's owner to wear. The top is adorned with two daisies, strategically designed to fall over the nipples. "When the doll is lifted near the flowers it makes sucking sounds," according to ParentDish. Voila! You're nursing!

But nowhere near as creepy as the reaction from the yahoos at FOX
