BBC acts over light-skinned doll

The BBC is to replace a doll based on the Upsy Daisy character from CBeebies TV show In the Night Garden following complaints it is too light-skinned.

A BBC Worldwide spokesman said it had conducted research after getting "a handful" of complaints that the doll had lighter skin than the TV character.

The BBC would now bring out a version with "a darker skin tone", he said.

Manufacturer Hasbro has been asked to create a different version that will appear in stores from Easter onwards.

The BBC Worldwide spokesman denied newspaper reports the doll had been recalled from stores.

"We are not withdrawing the old doll because most people are happy with it," he told the BBC News website.

This was always going to happen, this issue was raised as soon as the toys were released. The concerns were ignored then and funnily enough once again when they released a second wave of new toys (with bed, etc).

Now am I being cynical to think that it is funny how a revised toy will now be made, just after Christmas, when god knows how many units have just been sold.


P.S. Rant over - I do think it's a load of tosh too.
