Dh bought dd kinder eggs. Inside the surprise comes out a hippo dressed like Marilyn in her white empire dress with hot air vent included to blow up the dress. The figurine has a sexy pose with expression of being while carrying a heart shaped balloon.

AIBU to think that such toys should not be sold to children? Is the kinder eggs aimed at adults too? Even if it was, the cartoon is targeted at children. Am assuming it's well known character too. Why the dress and pose ? hmmconfused

Selling sexualised characters to kids is not on. What happened to just having a normal hippo?

Agree it is odd. But are Happy Hippos back?! I never got one of them properly, the only one I had was one I found on the floor. A hippo in a leotard like a grey, rotund Jane Fonda.

Is the happy hippo a thing? They could still do it without the sex if the target market are kids.

I have just noticed the breast too. hmm
