Disney Princess Sippy Cup Design Fail?

1 Feb

Disney Princess sippy cup with surprisingly phallic straw

I do not even know how to caption this. I found it difficult enough to just write the alt text for the image.

I would like to think that this isn’t a design fail, that in fact there’s some renegade gender outlaw designer out there in Disney consumer products, perhaps the same person we can thank for Ryan in a kilt. And maybe their buddy in Parks has a similar aesthetic, and is responsible for the PVC-and-pigtails cheerleader in the HSM3 pep rally over at the Studios I mentioned in a trip report some time back. But probably not.

Thank goodness for BoingBoing. I’m not sure where else I would have seen this.

And hey, I just recently enabled Google AdSense on this blog, which is supposed to come up with related topics for the ads. What on earth are they gonna connect to this? When I previewed before posting, it was Richard Simmons Sweatin’ to the Oldies. Wow.

    Well, luckily it’s BPA free. (Good grief, what were they thinking?!)
