Groc has discovered the secret of pregnant Barbie - she could only ever give birth through Caesarian section. However, if you want fucked-up dolls, how about the Drug Affected Demonstrator baby doll from Reality Works.

Ideal for teaching kids what drug use during pregnancy can do, the DAD makes a high-pitched warbling cry recorded from a real drug-affected infant, it trembles from withdrawal symptoms, has a painful facial expression and tiny limbs. It's available in two skin tones, but unlike real drug-affected babies, it has an ON/OFF switch. After seeing that site, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. You know there's something wrong with a world where such a product has to be created...
