Parents have been left baffled by a pregnant Barbie-style doll that comes complete with a detachable stomach and a baby inside.
The bizarre toy, which retails for £2.48 on Amazon UK, allows children to unscrew the flesh coloured bump to reveal a removable baby sitting inside.
It is described as a ‘Barbie’ on both Amazon and eBay, where similar models sell for £7.44. However it looks quite different to Mattel’s best-selling doll.
