Forget the Wii. No need for the PS3. Ignore iPod’s and Barbies and educational toys. Walk right past the clothing and tennis shoes. This Christmas, all the cool kids want the Dr. Laura action figure.
Dr. Laura is not only one of the most popular radio personalities in America, she is also a best selling author of 14 books, including 4 children’s books. Best known for her no-nonsense approach to parenting and her unwavering commitment to children, Dr. Laura always believes everyone should “go do the right thing”.
The Dr. Laura Action Figure stands 11 inches tall and is packaged in a display box that includes her biography and photos from her personal collection. Dr. Laura herself was involved in the creation of the doll to ensure that this action figure is as true to life as possible.
Below are only a few of the 23 different phrases that the highly anticipated Dr. Laura action figure says when you press her button.
“…proud mother of an American soldier.”
“…argue with me. It makes me testy.”
“…this is the hill you want to die on?”
“I am my kid’s mom.”
First, I just want to say that I am thrilled this is not a blow up doll. If that were the case, I might never have had sex again. Second, I’d like to point out that one of the catchphrases included both in the doll and on the box is, “Now, go do the right thing.” No doubt, Dr. L picked this up from her close friend and fellow Democrat Spike Lee. Good for her.
Lastly, it says that you get to hear her phrases when you “press her button.” No one should know how to push Dr. Laura’s “button.” That’s just nasty. Unless they mean pissing her off. In that case, by all means.
So, go ahead and give your daughter a Dr. Laura doll this Christmas instead of Barbie or some other meaningless toy. Your daughter and her therapist will thank you for it later…assuming she will ever speak with you again after giving her such a crappy gift.
