When I was a kid, toys were a luxury. You usually received them on Christmas and birthdays. Now, kids get toys year-round, mainly from grandparents who spoil their grandkids (and I confess that I am among that number). Shame on us.
But one toy my grandkids won’t be receiving is the new gender-fluid Creatable World doll from Mattel (see BP story). Barbie, Hot Wheels and countless other toys have worked well for Mattel for years. The long-time toy company certainly didn’t need to join the gender debate.
Toys used to be fun and a diversion for kids. Now, they are becoming a political tool.
Kids are not the target audience of these new Mattel toys. Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family said it well in the Baptist Press story: “These are dolls created by adults to make them feel good about their racial gender theories.”
Shame on Mattel for jumping into the fray and introducing a product that will simply confuse children. My prediction is most parents will stay away from the product in droves, but there will be some who will buy the dolls, thus indoctrinating children at a young age into a lifestyle that is immoral and biblically wrong. Shame on those parents.
God created both male and female and He didn’t leave it up to the parents to choose.
My hope is that these toys are a fad that will fade and that Glenn Stanton is correct. He told Baptist Press, “You’re going to be able to find these toys on the discount table in about four months, after Christmas.”
Pray like never before for our country. It is under direct assault by Satan. God is our only hope. B&R
