Walmart Sells Inappropriate Clothing for Children

On Sunday, August 12 (2007), I was in WalMart. I do not myself have children, but I was looking at some of the NoBoundaries children's t-shirts to find something cute for my cousin for her birthday. However, I was extremely upset with some of the t-shirt designs that the company is making for children. One had a taco licking its lips that said, "One Spicy Number". The second and most appauling was a white t-shirt and in pink and silver writing, it said "Let's Download Something...Naughty!". I really don't think this is a t-shirt that should be sold to children. I asked to speak to the store manager and was introduced to a nice young woman. I explained my complaint and she agreed that it was inappropriate. While I know that the store itself (store 2159 in Olean, NY) can't make decisions for what it can sell, the chain should be held responsible for what it's selling as children's clothing, especially when it sounds like something that would entice a child pornographer.
Think a little more about the products that you agree to sell in your stores for children. Would you let your child wear a plaid skirt so short it could be used as a dust rag? Also, I think the company that makes the shirt, NoBoundaries, should be held responsible for making clothing that should be worn by hookers and not children under the age of 10.
