Next makes a cock-up on babygro design

17 July 2014

Some people have just one job, and they can’t seem to get that right. Take babygro pattern designers- how hard can it be to draw pictures of rabbits in pink or blue? However, it seems this babygro designer for Next was “having a laugh” by putting x-rated content all over cute little babies. See for yourself:

No? Shane Gallivan, 23 from Notts, was feeding his twin daughters when something popped up in the ‘washing line’ design. Shane’s wife Carla, 24, said: “He was feeding my daughter when he suddenly said ‘oh my god’. He looked at the baby grow and noticed the trousers were covered in penises.

Try again with the close up. Now you see it?

The miniscule penises have caused great consternation in the Gallivan household. “It just looks like the designer was having a laugh and no one spotted it. I was angry because it’s not the kind of thing you should be dressing a baby in,” spat Carla, adding  “I think what makes it all worse is that I have dressed two girls in it, not just that I put it on a baby.”

Clearly it’s OK to cover small boys with pictures that could possibly be mistaken for tiny willies, given they own one.

Nevertheless, the pornographic babywear has been withdrawn from the shelves by Next, who said in a statement:

“The offending part of the design started life as an upside down jumper with a neck binding and placket with buttons (hanging on the washing line), but unfortunately has been over simplified by the printer and has unintentionally become something else.”

“This is an innocent mistake that had not been picked up in the approval process. As it was inappropriate we made the decision to withdraw this item from sale as soon as it was bought to our attention earlier this year.”

Some people just have a dirty mind.

    Clearly just an upside down jumper, the only people that would see anything rude in it is someone looking to get their name in the papers.

    and if YOU CHOSE that exact sleepsuit to put your babies to bed in, it's not your fault at all is it?

    Obviously the design was done by Rolf Harris.

    Shane and Carla Gallican clearly have ussues if they have raised this publicly as a problem. Get over yourself! This was obviously not intended to look like a cock!
