Critics feel that such play items for girls may cause them to grow up really fast or lead to over sexualisation of young girls. This can have a negative effect during their growing years.

While doctors have given the doll a clean chit, parents are still divided in their opinion. Some of the plus points put forth by the manufacturers about the doll, of it inspiring maternal qualities in young girls as well as underlining the importance of breast milk, has not convinced many critics and parents.

The manufacturers of this doll are happy with its sales and popularity in international markets and are all geared up to launch the product in United States.
