Pretend Babies

From the bus, Offsprog One and myself watched a huddle of teenage girls (and one boy) walking through Whetstone with their fake babies.
Fake babies are given to teenage girls to put them off becoming pregnant just for fun (!).
They cry 24 hours a day at intermittent moments, and need to be soothed.
The girls looked rather embarrassed. The girls had brown skin and the babies had pink skin.
One baby was in a pushchair, and the teenage boy was pushing that; he looked terribly proud.
When Offsprog Two's class had pretend babies, one of her friends put it in the cupboard until it was time to give it back to the school.
