Fisher-Price Photoshops White Head on Black Baby: The Most Racist, Ridiculous Thing Ever?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A promotional photo for the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair shows what appears to be an African-American baby with a white head.

We wish we were making this up, but ... there's just no way the cute little head and body pictured below belong to the same human being, is there?

  • Fisher-Prince High Chair

Assuming this image is doctored in the way we think it is, it's easily the most obvious photoshop fail of all time, which is not a small feat (see gallery below).

Was Fisher-Price trying to target white customers but just liked the way this African-American child was posing and thought no one would notice?

Were they attempting to market the product specifically to mixed-race children but unable find a good baby model and decided to split the difference?

Does the company simply suck at marketing, computers, and life?

So many questions. And likely no answer that makes any sense.

In any case, this awesome-looking Fisher-Price high chair features ...

  • A chair pad and straps that are easy to both remove and clean
  • Lights and brightly colored activities that reinforce visual skills
  • A removable toy that can be played with in or out of the chair
  • A potentially severe identity crisis for your impressionable kid

All for just $129.99 (or $106.37 with free shipping and a video streaming service you totally won't use if you have Amazon Prime) ... what a bargain.

That baby's head and body can't be from the same person, can they?

Who cares? It is a baby who is innocent and perfect as it is. If some people want to make a big deal from this unnecessary mess, then just let them.

Someone is losing his/her job over this. There's always a scrape goat. Not sure what statement this makes except to get people riled.

If somebody put a White head over a Black baby's head, it sounds like the intent was to take that body and either turn THAT skin white, or mess with the color of the head to "make" the baby Black. It's been done before, and that's pretty messed up and sounds pretty racist to me. That's saying there wasn't a Black baby cute enough or acceptable enough, so they had to slap one together using some poor unknown kids' bodies. Who's playing what now?

Alright this is just silly I can't imagin why a childs company would do such a thing so I don't think they did because honestly that could easily just be lighting and shadows cus the the skin on the babys legs doesnt even look like a "black babys" skin it just looks a bit dark which like I said could easily be lighting cus fisher price has no reason to do something like that
