Hasbro Pulled Trolls Doll Because It Promoted Inappropriate Touching
If you recently bought your child a Troll recently, it'd be a great idea to check it out to make sure it isn't a part of this batch.
Hasbro has pulled the "Trolls World Tour Giggle and Sing Poppy Doll" after being accused of child grooming, and promoting inappropriate touching.
Ok, I am NEVER one to put this stuff on social media .... but what? Is this for real ?

This Trolls World Tour doll named Poppy has a button on her private area under her skirt. When you push this button on the doll’s private she gasps and giggles. This is not okay for a child’s toy! This toy needs to be removed from our stores. What will this toy make our innocent, impressionable children think? That it’s fun when someone touches your private area? That pedophilia and child molestation are ok? It’s not ok!
The petition has gotten over 270,000 signatures, but the company pulled the toy from shelves yesterday afternoon.
Hasbro spokeswoman Julie Duffy sent an email to The Providence Journal explaining, “This feature was designed to react when the doll was seated, but we recognize the placement of the sensor may be perceived as inappropriate. This was not intentional and we are happy to provide consumers with a replacement Poppy doll of similar value through our consumer care team. We are in the process of removing the item for purchase.”
