I do not like the way we are progressing as a species.
Here's a closer look at the "action figures" offered by the company that makes them, including Biden, Obama, Bernie, Dr. Fauci, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Pocahontas, AOC, Pelosi, RBG, Pope Francis, and Robert Mueller:

You can even have your kids practice masking with Dr. Fauci – oh, and subject Donald Trump to torture!
I mean, I get the premise. If you're a woke acolyte who has replaced God with government, you need some little idols to carry around and venerate. I do think it's SUPREMELY IRONIC to use your capital to purchase dolls of literal commies, but you do you!
It's not said idol-worship that gets me: it's the fact that these are being sold for kids.
I have three young children, so I'm at least moderately versed in what the kids want to play with these days. I can't tell you the number of Frozen princess games and Bluey binge-watching sprees I've been subjected to – let alone the number of times I've heard "Baby Shark" just this week (please make it stahp).
I can definitively say that getting a doll of any politician would be the the worst present of all time.
Especially if the cool ones like AOC are only acceptable for age 14+, leaving you the lame ones like Biden if you're a preschooler!
When I was younger, I didn't want to play with George Bush, Bill Clinton (Lord help us), or Bob Dole action figures. I wanted things like Luke Skywalker and Spiderman toys because I was a normal child.
Which brings me to the main point: these dolls aren't for kids.
They're for virtue-signaling woke parents who need a little pocket AOC to help them get through the day.
It's comforting to know that here in America, when your worldview is shallow enough that you revert to adolescence to support your beliefs, that the free market is always there to help!
