L.O.L. Surprise! dolls, one of the top-selling toys this holiday season, is facing controversy because some parents have been shocked by male character L.O.L. Surprise! dolls being anatomically correct, and the CEO is defending the dolls.
“Human beings are anatomically correct,” MGA Entertainment CEO Isaac Larian said on FOX Business’ “The Claman Countdown” on Thursday. “I think we've got to teach our children from an early age about their body parts. I see nothing wrong with that.”
The company defended the choice to make their boy characters anatomically correct on Instagram.
"Yes, our boy characters are anatomically correct," the company wrote in its post. "We embrace all body styles, shapes, colors and anatomy — we support a world of #inclusivity and #noshame!"
The girl character dolls don't appear to have the same level of detail, however.
“We openly say on the package and on our advertising, 'These are anatomically correct boy dolls,' and [parents] have a choice not to buy it,” he said.
