Now that all the problems in the world have apparently been solved, P&G can focus on “gender inclusivity” cartoon characters on diapers.
But maybe they need to re-think putting pictures of cameras on diapers.
Just a suggestion.
The characters from “Sesame Street” are quietly getting pulled from Pampers — and it might be because they’re mostly dudes.
In a major move this summer that hasn’t been officially announced, the world’s biggest diaper brand has quietly wiped characters like Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch from most of its diapers…..
If P&G and “Sesame Street” are scrambling to address complaints about gender, few of them appear to have surfaced publicly. Meanwhile, the quiet, seismic shift away from a 15-year tie-up has sparked confusion and outrage online.
“I’m convinced I got fake pampers Swaddlers from Amazon,” one miffed mother wrote on parenting blog BabyCenter in early June. Another chimed in, saying the new Pampers “have a cat on them and look fake.”
Others have voiced concerns about quality, complaining of leaks.
Not all parents are convinced. Wong-Benjamin says she demanded — and got — a refund from her local Walgreens after her 2-month-old son, Xavier, leaked more with the new Pampers, which instead of Muppets have generic-looking designs of paper airplanes and cameras on them.
“I thought this could be something made in China — like something you’d buy at the dollar store,” Wong-Benjamin told The Post. “I mean, who puts a camera on a diaper?”
