Oh I was wondering how Katie Price did her washing.

My 93 yr old grandma bought a pink playboy bunny gift bag for DD's christening gift!! I guess she just thought it was a cute bunny!

I loathe them. DD came with a Playboy towel aged 10 - it is now in the loft and will be discreetly disposed of the moment I think she has forgotten about it.

they seem to be marketing such things towards little girls.shuddering at thought of infant playboy-wear...

tis wholly unsavoury.

i have a feeling a large percentage of next door's stash belongs to the 40 year old mother though which seems like false advertising.

Someone I used to work with decorated daugher bedroom in playboy stuff for her 10th birthday shock

shock monkeypinkmonkey did she know it was the playboy bunny?

My DH's Gran had lots of t-shirts with the playboy bunny on and it wasn't till they went to see her in spain that they realised and told her what it was.

I can't remember if it is Argos or where but they have a range of kids stuff with the Play Boy logo on and i'm sure there has been a thread on here about it before.

Just be glad theyre not on your washing line.

paranoid, my parents are similarly naive. they bring the phrase "criminal naivety" to mind sometimes.

sherazade Sun 16-Aug-09 13:43:24

you are being absolutely reasonable!

HerBeatitude Sun 16-Aug-09 13:44:41

I've explained to my DD that under no circumstances will I tolerate that symbol in my house, even if it is a present.

How unspeakably naff.

Paolosgirl Sun 16-Aug-09 13:47:01

YANBU at all. Naff and deeply questionnable.

Ex neighbours little girl aged 8 wanted (and was going to get) her room done out in Playboy bunny stuff when they moved to their new house. You do wonder where some people leave their brains.....

Mumcentreplus Sun 16-Aug-09 13:59:25

YANBU..I hate the stuff's everywhere

Worst part about it is that it's sometimes aimed specifically at children..

Ick. I know - playboy pencil cases - who buys pencil cases? Nobody over 16 and plenty of people under
