    By the toys description, I cant tell which is the monkey.
    I mean, its obviously the monkey but..
    Whys she wearing a "Lil monkey" hat?
    Why does it say the monkey has its own bottle, and the GIRL is holding it?
    Why is all the monkey stuff on the girls side?
    And more importantly, WHY IS SHE SHARING A DIAPER WITH IT?

    thank you Samsquanch

    here`s my question:
    no one would have a problem if it was a white doll with a monkey. however, since it is a black doll they scream racism. does that mean kiddos that want a black doll and a monkey cannot have one? OMG common sense people.

    Darkgear go somewhere else and dont bitch. Wasnt a repost.

    But does raise question by saying this is wrong u are actually declaring yourself racist as you percieve it that way. (not sayiing your going to join the clan and crack some heads but think it)
    Those that created it probably thought innocently enough little kids are little monkeys..tikes.. etc etc and any other name for little kids.Giving a free stuffed animal with it aswell. People should stop calling the race card just lines poickets of al sharpton and ann coulture.

    I completely agree with edana...Theres 2 ways to interpret this toy, you either take it as just being a doll with a monkey animal theme, or you take it as racism. I think white people are just becoming so extremely afraid to be racist that they are starting to turn on other white people for everything that even suggest that another person is black. although we have to remember past mistakes, the past is the past. its a stupid protein in peoples skin..get the F* over it.

    Proof that the people who scream "racist!" are probably more racist than the kids they`re trying to "protect."

    People need to stop thinking everything is racist.

    I`m sick of people telling me that everybody is a little bit racist just to justify their prejudices. I`m not racist at all.

    Definition of racism - The belief that race accounts for differences in *human character or ability* and that *a particular race is superior to others*.

    Nope. Not racist in the slightest bit.

    What...whats wrong with that?
    It clearly states the monkey and the baby are seperate toys...thig is, if the baby was white, no one would complain. The fact everyone complains when the slightest little thing looks racist makes a big point of it, and only makes the problem worse.

    Not really sure how you idiots try to say that this doesn`t look racist... It`s a black baby with the words lil` monkey across her head. She shares a diaper with the real monkey... Go find some black people (I`m sure you can... just walk out of your house, it`ll be ok...) and start blatantly equating them to a monkey. Hell, throw out the term porch monkey a few times. I`m sure they`ll love that...
    And fyi, I fcking hate overblown cries of racism for stupid poo -- but this doll got discontinued for a good reason:
    because this thing is some hilarious racism

    Doesn`t surprise me that much. In Sociology class we had to write a paper on toys and we had to go to the toy aisle and make notes on various thing we saw. It`s amazing what`s on the packaging or the toy itself when you stand and analyze it.

    "if the baby was white, no one would complain"

    Last time I checked, it was not the most insulting thing in the world to call a white person a "Monkey" but it is, in fact, the most insulting thing to call a black person. Use a little common sense.

    Try the standard that imbored454 suggests. Would you say it to the face of a big black guy walking down the street? If not, then it is racist.

    I bet theres a white one and either a hispanic or asian one too. ever notice in doll commercials friend groups have 3 girls, a black one a white one then another girl who is either hispanic, asian, or white but with a different hair color than the other white girl, and they all match their doll.

    You know guys, the more you get uppity about this crap the more it will continue. If you teach a young kid to get offended, they will get offended because you gave them a reason to be. If you pass it off as nothing special, the child will adopt that behavior too.

    So basically, chill.

    Where you see racism I see innocence.

    There are two types of people who would call this racist:
    1) Racists
    2) People desperate for attention

    You know what`s really f*ckin crazy? there might actually be different colored dolls that have monkeys too.

    But maybe it`s all one grand conspiracy that called for an entire line of dolls aimed at children who like monkeys just so they could get the satisfaction of putting a black baby in a box with a hat that has the words "lil` monkey" on it.

    Makes sense to me.

    true story... when I was in elementary school, we were supposed to do present a biography of a famous person... I chose Jessie Owens... being a creative kid, I chose to do mine as an interview... so I bought in my monkey puppet to play the part of Jessie Owens... as an innocent child without a prejudice bone in his body, I had NO IDEA that it could be considered insulting to anybody... of course, not one kid was insulted... only my WHITE teacher was, who called my parents to have them discuss it with me.

    Hello? I`m gay and a fan of the furry fandom? I get twice the crap from e-trash thank you very much. If I hadn`t tossed Judaism out of my life I`d have a pretty solid triple hitter here.

    I`ve since let a lot of crap slide. It`s been a lot better. Not as much drama. Just pity for others really.

    being gay and liking "furry fandom" doesn`t make you understand the many ways this could be racist to some black people. I think it is so of over thinking it a bit, but then again, it can be taken that way.

    Excuse me?

    Have you not seen the goddamn kids thrown out of their homes when they come out to their drating ignorant parents?

    Have you no sympathy for the people killed in the "name of the lord" on a goddamned fence?

    What of the people protesting the freaking funerals of gay men saying "God laughs" or some twisted bullcrap?

    We can`t change ourselves any more than you can change your drating skin tone. We`re in the same boat here. People are stupid, and unless the IGNORANCE and the STUPIDITY is ended, we`re just gonna keep sailing along on this godforsaken pooriver!

    Now you got my goat. I`m going to bed. Have a nice night.

    the part that is racist is not the fact that its a baby next to the monkey. but because the baby is wearing a hat that says "lil` monkey" next to a monkey, now if it was just the baby, by herself with the hat, you would assume it to be a nickname, but because of the monkey plushy, it is assumed that they are calling the baby a monkey as well.

    Some people may refer to their child as "lil` monkey", but historically the term "monkey" has been a word used to degrade and dehumanize African Americans. Whether the maker of the doll intended to do this or not can`t really be known, but what is known is that the doll is clearly offensive to a lot of people. I find it confusing that so many people would tell others to get over it and move on when something like this is yet another reminder of the many inequalities that still exist between people of color and Whites in this country. People think that because the president if African American, that racism is a thing of the past. For those of you who think racism is no longer an issue in the U.S., please educate yourselves.

    There were a lot of words back in the day referring to blacks in a dehumanizing way. We have all noted change in the last half a century and have chastised one word in particular as now the “N” word. We can not demonize every word. The dialogue in the posts here exemplifies a positive attitude towards racial equality. A good majority of people see the Monkey as what it is a Monkey, not a connotation to a person of color. A "lil monkey" as a small child. Lil monkey is an endearing term I used for my childern as I am sure many have used. Others who are still in the OMG offensive stages, see it as offensive to a person of color. Whichever your attitude the approach is positive. Those who still bare hatred are dieing and dwindling. Once we all,blacks and whites, learn to let go of the past stigmas then and only then will there be racial harmony

    It`s not, I work at Costco. I was in the breakroom bored off my ass one day , and decided to read all the papers posted up on the wall. One was about our store manager being fired so of course that caught my interest first, and right next to that letter was the letter about this "Offensive Product" which turned out to be this doll. I can`t remember exactly what it said other than the fact that the doll was being pulled , and that Costco was apologizing for it or something.

    really, for the people that don`t realize how racist it really is are not aware of this specific historical racism: black people = "monkies", "spooks", ect. they could have chosen any other cutesy animal, a pony, a dolphin, a kitten, anything. but they chose a monkey? I`m jealous of the people who don`t find this offensive, obviously ignorance is bliss.
