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

by 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?

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.
