    Anyone else think this is a bit weird?

    You can get all the bedspreads and lamps and rugs and stuff and I know some girls aged 5-6 have it.

    I think it's a bit odd, if I had a daughter I wouldn't her have that stuff.

    I personally wouldn't let my daughter have the stuff. And I know if we had a girl my OH would go ballistic.

    I find it a little odd young girls having Playboy stuff.

    as a kid it would be a pattern, like any other pattern. but as a parent who knows it has sexual connotations?

    personally i wouldn't buy it, but that's just my opinion and choice.

    I think 20 is fine if you like that kind of thing (it's all a bit pink and frilly for me LOL) but for children I do think its a bit odd.

    HEYY!!! i'm the same LOL i love all the pink playboy stuff, i have loads of things BUT i dont even think of it in the sexual context. i do agree however that children that young should not have it, i only started buying things when i was around 18!

    :D

    I do think it's odd for children to have it as I associate playboy with sex, hugh hefner and playmates.

    Personally I love Playboy stuff and reguarly watch 'girls of the playboy mansion' its hilarious!

    But i wouldnt let imogen have any of the stuff knowing that the symbol is linked to highly explicit sexual content.

    She can have it once shes over 16 if it still around then!

    It must be an american thing. I mean look at them beauty contests for children, they're a bit sick. I think theres probably alot of small girls growing up in the USA wanting to be a playboy bunny when they grow up.

    ? :?

    Absolutely wrong when you know the connotations that the symbol has. There are plenty of other alternative pink things out there than something that is linked to pornography and there is no way that I would allow my daughter to have it.

    I personally would DEFINATELY NOT let a 5 -6 year old have it in there bedroom. Yes they may just see it as a bunny but we all know it's about porn. Not that i have anything against porn.. for adults!!!

    I maybe would allow it as they got to 15-16 maybe. Even then I'm not sure.

    But definately not appropriate for a child. Go get a bratz bed set or something. :wall:

    If the kid just sees it as a bunny then why the need to buy a playboy one just buy a normal bunny one? :think:

    I personally have a problem with it, but then I also have a big problem with Bratz dolls, why do dolls made for little girls have to be so plastered in make up and dressed like hookers? I just dont see that its nessesary at all and encourages younger girls to want to dress like teenagers, as if the sicko's in this world need any more encouragement!

    Maybe its a good job I had a little boy!! :roll:

    i love it too, its a bit chav but still lol. i would have my room covered in it but OH wont let me but i av got a lot of the jewellery. i wouldnt let my daughter have it tho. i can understand teenagers avin it from 14 onwards cus it is seen as a brand name like nike etc so they see it as cool but any younger than that i dont see the point cus they would be just as happy with a heart pattern. i think its the connotations of the bunny symbol for adults which would stop me frombuying it for kids!
