Sex toy exhibit at NZ kids’ show appalls parentsOctober 30th, 2010 - 5:43 pm ICT by ANI
Wellington, Oct 30 (ANI): Display of sex toys in a parent and child show by an exhibitor invited strong criticism from fellow stallholders and many of the visitors.
In wake of the comments received, organizers of ‘ASG Parent and Child show’ in, which is going on in New Zealand, have asked the exhibitor to tone down a display of adult toys.
One mother said she was taking her 3-year-old daughter and would not want the kid seeing those things and asking questions.
The woman, who asked not to be identified, said she was pregnant with her second child and had been to the annual show several times before.
“But I’ve never seen a stall like this and it’s pretty inappropriate,” the New Zealand Herald quoted her as saying.
D.vice director Wendy Lee said the show was more “female focused”.
“We’ve had a lot of people say, ‘It is great to see you here’,” she said.
Show organiser Dona White said none of the exhibition visitors had complained, but she had had discussions with D.vice staff and they had agreed to change some of their signs. (ANI)
