Photos of a transgender doll – which features a penis and dress – have gone viral after being spotted in Planeta Igrushek (Planet Of Toys) shop in the city of Novosibirsk, Siberia.
The world’s first transgender children’s doll has gone on sale in a toy shop in Russia.
The doll has long blonde hair and female facial features. It also had on a red and yellow polka dot dress, but beneath the dress is a penis.
The doll is the first of its kind spotted in Russia – and thought to be among the first child transgender dolls in the world.
A transgender doll divided opinion in Argentina when it went on sale at Toys R Us in 2018, while in 2019 toy company Mattel announced a gender neutral Barbie doll.
The images attracted opinion on social media, with one writing: “Is it ok to produce toys like that for children?”
Another wrote: “I think it is really terrible what is going on in this child’s parent’s head. Have you considered that it could simply be a manufacturing defect? Or they accidentally put a female head on a male body?”
Another simply wrote: “I believe this is a liberal attempt to change the society.”
