CORPUS CHRISTI - A local woman is shocked about a Christmas present her 18-month old granddaughter got. When you remove the doll's clothing, you find male genitalia.
Sandra Eastman says the girl's mother ripped the doll away from her as soon as she saw it. "It's got a lot of reveal, parts that it shouldn't, a baby doll shouldn't have," Eastman says.
It's part of a line of dolls from the "You and Me" collection.
Not all of them have genitalia, and the ones that do say "anatomically correct" on the box.
But even if you spot the fine print, Eastman brings up a good point. She says "anatomically correct" could mean many things.
"You'd think it has something else. A nose or a belly button or something," she says.
The doll is sold at Toys R Us, and the reviews on their website are all positive.
After getting it for her daughter, one mother wrote, "I love that it's anatomically correct; she now knows that boys have penises and girls don't. It was a very simple conversation. Parents, don't be afraid to talk to your children about their anatomy."
But Eastman says this. "I would hope they'd pull them off every shelf," she says.
We did a quick search online and dolls like this aren't that uncommon. There are other brands that have similar dolls, both boy and girl that are "anatomically correct".
