Controversial Children’s Toy: ‘Baby’s First Cubicle’

“It’s all about expectation management, you see. If you make your kid think he can be president, he will grow up disappointed. Tell him he’s headed for a life as an office drone and at least he’ll be mentally prepared,” says Adam Frucci, author of this article on Gizmodo, pondering the possibility that this may just be “the most depressing toy ever.”

Is this akin to playhouses and Easy Bake Ovens–give the kids something that makes them feel grown-up like dad & mom? Or has it crossed the line into some kind of Kiddie Twilight Zone?

While it is really just an elaborate (and expensive!) computer station for tykes, one Gizmodo reader questions the point of such a toy when a child capable of using this gadget should presumably be able to operate a standard laptop or desktop computer.

Take a look at the features and functionalities (and price!) of this kiddie-cubicle on Gizmodo now.
