Can Anything For Our Kids Be Trusted?
And now let's discuss the show Doc McStuffins. Oh, Doc McStuffins. Listen, I'll be honest, this one isn't that bad. I mean, sure one day Doc will have to be admitted to some pysch ward because her parents will finally realize she's been suffering from acute hallucinations involving talking stuffed animals, but hey, isn't it cute right now? No, my problem with this show is the character Lambie, who's whole mission in life is to offer creepy cuddles to anything that moves. Honestly, give her a trench coat and an apartment overlooking a children's playground and she will be registered within the week. Seriously, it's just weird. And the timing of her cuddles are so weird. Some toy will receive a pretty bad diagnosis from Doc, with no solution in sight, and then Lambie will saunter over and ask, "Do you need a cuddle?" No, Lambie. Geez, give the toy some space. It would be like hearing you have cancer, and then some creepy male nurse coming in saying, "Hey guy, heard you got the cancer, how about a hug?" Um, no.
So, I'm at a lost. Books are full of ridiculous characters. Videos are full of morons. Are we supposed to be talking to our kids or something?
