Who needs ‘My Little Pony’ when your little one can have her very own pink-themed Ouija Board?

In 2008 Parker Brothers and Hasbro teamed up to release the all pink version of the classic parlour game ‘Ouija’ aimed at girls, ages 8 and up.

  1. I cannot tell you how much those ouija boards always freaked me out… and i get that it’s stupid but watched too many supernatural episode to be fooled by their trickery!!! Bring me some gasoline and a lighter!

  2. I doubt object to the board or the concept (I can’t really believe it will really call in evil), but PINK?! Seriously, Parker Bros?! How much gender-stereotyping do we want in our kid’s lives?

    I vote for NONE! Maybe a bit of glitter or bedazzling might make it into my shopping cart, but NEVER a pink version of any toy targeting girls.
