Tini Puppini makes me feel like a meany



Tini_2 Anybody else seen the commercials for these skanky little dog dolls called Tini Puppini?  I want a martini every time I hear the name.

Here's why: "I love my tail in these jeans!" exclaims "Toffee" in the commercial. You gotta watch it here. It's so stupid it's LOL hilarious -- if it weren't for that line. Because now my daughter, who laughed so hard she almost peed her pants, spontaneously squeals it over and over. That is just so wrong.

The dolls are supposed to be adorable "Doggie Divas" that little girls can dress up and style their hair. Fair enough. That's not much different from Bratz or some other dolls, and I'm sure they'll be popping out of Christmas stockings everywhere. But I pray, oh toy gods, please, please, please don't let my daughter ask for one.

Because I can overlook the "party boots" and "puppy bling," but I can't get past that line in the commercial. Sure, it made us giggle like schoolgirls, but I just can't shell out good money for something that makes my daughter squeal and shake her booty.
