I went to Tarjay recently and bought my daughter some sippy cups. I needed new ones because although she loves the kind with the straws, she has chewed said straws down to the nub. So I decided to just get the latest in technology “unspillable” kind, especially as she has a penchant for dumping water all over the floor and my leather furniture.
The cups were on the lowest rung of the display, and one cup was orange and one cup was pink. I definitely noticed animals on one cup, and only quickly glanced at the other one. Whatever, it was pink. As long as both of them weren’t pink, I was good.
Until I got home and opened the package.
OK, ignore the purple cup. Do you see the graphics on the pink one? It’s got a purse, a makeup brush, a compact, and a mirror, among other things.
Am I wrong to think that this is just a bit too mature for a two year old?
I love makeup. I write a beauty blog. My daughter enjoys watching me put makeup on.
But it just seems wrong.
