Questionable Marketing for Children's Halloween Costumes

I read an article today about a walmart selling costumes for 2 year olds with the name naughty leopard costumes. Have things gone way to far or is it just me ? I dont care what context you use naughty in but when referring to little ones it just doesn't sound right.

I agree, it's a poor choice of words. There is no need to sexualize a toddler!

Why can't they let kids be kids. This trying to make children look older, act older etc is sickening. Let them be children, it is such a short part of their lives, don't try to make them into sexual beings at such an early age. Even in the name of a product that is so wrong. Children are such innocent beings, please let them stay that way as long as possible. What is wrong with manufacturer's using such wording in children's products! Oh! I forgot, its greed, anything that will catch the eye and draw attention to a product in hopes of making another sale.

It's getting to be a pretty nasty world out there people, when the almighty dollar is more important than a child's innocence.

This is pretty disturbing. I'm surprised Walmart would sell something like this. Considering they edit their CDs of profanity, yet they put out a sexed up costume for toddlers? Very confusing. What's next, the sexy nurse?
