Is Slave Leia toy bad?
So, would you buy a Slave Leia toy for a kid? Apparently there’s a big deal being made by a dad over the Slave Leia toy being released in just about all toy stores. Keep in mind, the toys are more meant for adult collectors, but like many toys, they’re still displayed in kid sections of any store. This goes without saying Toys R Us is almost 100% kid friendly. Or it should be at least. The father in this video does make valid points, and we should make strong role models for young girls to live up to, but come on. Slave Leia is shown in the movie and most kids have seen Return of the Jedi. Multiple times. I dare ask if he’s shown his girls the movie, and if so, then he’s a hypocrite.
I don’t know, it seems odd that a parent would have any issue with a toy like this when there are many other toys that could be considered much more objectionable. I don’t think he looked through some of the other toy aisles. If he has a problem with this, I’m surprised he didn’t have an issue with the serial murder toys that exist. I mean sheltering kids from every aspect of society is not how to build a strong independent child.
But anyways, what do you think? Is this a bad thing? Do you agree with the dad?
