Fisher Price Offers RuPaul Drag Queen Set for Littles

The Fisher Price toy company has been an esteemed part of American childhood for nearly 100 years. Founded during the Great Depression, it has offered educational toys for children since 1930.

Now it’s offering a different sort of educational product for children: a RuPaul Drag Queen “Little People” set of dolls.

I wish I was kidding. But I’m not.

Many of us grew up with Fisher Price toys, like the Chatter Telephone and the Little Snoopy pull toys. Some of us bought the same toys for our own kids, as well as the classic house and farm sets. We knew they were quality items which would encourage imaginative play in our children.

And now the revered company has decided to bend to the LGBTQ crowd. Sigh.

 

Bowing to the LGBTQ Crowd

Here’s what Mattel, which now owns Fisher Price, said about its new RuPaul Little People collection:

“The figure pack honors RuPaul’s efforts to inspire people young and old to be true to themselves.”

“Fisher Price came to slay.” 

What a cringy sop to the woke mob.

The company added:

“RuPaul is a pop-culture icon who has been hailed as the best-dressed queen on TV and is coming to life in a whole new way for lip-syncing, runway-slaying fans.”

Yes, because a drag queen is the ultimate role model for your five-year-old child, right?

But hold on! Don’t adults mainly purchase these toys as collectibles?

Sure, they do. I honestly don’t get it, but many adults buy toys. Then again, preschoolers have been subjected to Drag Queen Story Hour in some libraries. Drag queen groups even have a website promoting this. So why should anyone be surprised that a toy company decided it would a good idea for littles to play with their very own drag queen? Plus, the package’s box states that the dolls are “appropriate for ages 1-101,” which means that Fisher Price and Mattel see little children as a target market.

 

Alternatives to Fisher Price

Fortunately, parents don’t have to shell out money to Mattel and Fisher Price for quality toys for their kids and grandkids.

Lego, of course, has offered all sorts of building opportunities for children as young as 18 months to adults. Their themes include Star Wars, Frozen, Minecraft, and Minions, as well as classic architecture and city scenes.

My grandson loves Legos. But my personal favorite toy sets come from Playmobil.

Like Lego, Playmobil offers constructive play sets featuring houses, farms, zoos, and other everyday themes. It also features popular storylines such as Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and the fairy series Ayuma. The toys are very sturdy and finished quite well, too.

But what also impresses me about Playmobil is its historic sets. Kids can play while learning about Vikings, Romans, and Greeks, among other historic civilizations. You know, those horrible white people who formed the basis of Western Civilization.

And there’s not a drag queen in the catalogs of either Lego or Playmobil, either.

Now there’s no guarantee that either of these companies won’t fall prey to the Zeitgeist. After all, both Lego and Playmobil originated in Europe — Lego in Denmark and Playmobil in Germany. And Europe is not exactly a bastion of conservative thought, either.

But in the meantime, fed-up parents have an opportunity to ditch the woke absurdity emanating from Fisher Price, while still letting their tots toddle around the house with Little Snoopy in tow, reminiscing about the days when Fisher Price stood for innocent, educational toys.

    I wonder if this pervert toy set comes with tiny butt plugs?

    No matter what they say, the homosexuals are coming for your kids. They cannot stop themselves. It is a deep impulse in homosexuality to groom kids. They scream they are not doing this, but every bit of evidence says they will always go after your kids.

    Like most Normals, I’m shaking my head at this. Just cannot believe what is before my eyes.
    Not the first time in life. Remember all those “child stars” in the late 70s and 80s? The ones appearing before every crowd gathered before cameras. At nightclubs, bars, inappropriate entertainment. In the company of ‘adults’ of questionable sexuality?
    And, then, how they seemed to melt down into a chemically-fueled mess of emotional overload, once their sell-by date was over? How they turned to drugs, crime, and mental breakdown that was truly painful to watch?
    No, I have no desire to see it again.

    This is so sad. Emblematic of the absolute worship of the almighty dollar. And most of us know what the Bible states on the love of money.

  • Sharon says:

    Well no more purchases to pad the pockets of these companies. Glad I saved the toys from my children and my daughter and I have found many like new age appropriate toys at thrift stores and rummage sales for a fraction of what they sell for in stores. These woke companies are only hurting themselves in the end. Parents have had enough. Between the school sexualizing the children and woke companies soon most kids will be homeschooled.

    Great, if painful, observations, Linda Fox. As much as I hate to say it, I know nothing else to say at this terrible juncture. It’s not my wish, but “they” have brought it about: “Lock and load.”

    True to oneself?? How are you being true to yourself if you pretend to be something you’re not??
