Hmm... I'm biting my tongue to keep from getting into the political talk here... I don't understand why anyone would feel the need to turn this discussion about a toy into a discussion of politics.
I don't personally have the toy in question, but I too hate the colors. This toy actually does seem to be getting some good reviews though -- four 5 star reviews, four 4 star reviews, and one 3 star review -- nothing under. Not too shabby, though the toy doesn't personally appeal to me.
