Bratz Dolls sexualising children

Singer Christina Aguilera is also singled out after a shoe advertisement in which she licks a lollipop while dressed as a schoolgirl.

Other signs of the early sexualisation of girls include T-shirts worn by five-year-olds with “flirt” written across the chest, magazines telling pre-teens to lose weight and style their hair to attract boys, and advertisements showing girls in sexy poses.Bratz dolls, which were the top-selling toy for girls in Australia last year, can come dressed in sexy clothing such as fishnet stockings and feather boas, sit in hot tubs wearing bikinis, mix drinks, and hang out with boys, the report says.”Bratz babyz”, which are marketed at girls aged three, are dressed in leather and lingerie.
