Toymaker Hasbro Inc. has abandoned a planned line of dolls inspired by the Pussycat Dolls. Billboard reports that Hasbro decided the dolls were “inappropriate” for the company to market to their young customer base.
Pussycat Dolls, an all-female music group, is known for racy lyrics and barely-there outfits.
A U.S. advocacy group called Dads & Daughters had campaigned against the toy line.
“We asked Hasbro executives to imagine encouraging their own 6-year-old daughters and granddaughters to engage in developmentally unhealthy behavior,” said Joe Kelly, president of Dads & Daughters, in a statement.”It appears that they did that, and then made the right decision for their families, our families, and the company.”
