Music Video: William’s Doll
I am ecstatic from the great comments you folks have been leaving on the Are Doll Houses Okay for Boys? article. You’ve raised many issues I didn’t consider.
Here is a music video of a song called William’s Doll, from a 1972 record and 1974 TV special titled Free to Be You and Me. The male vocals are handled by Alan Alda, aka the manliest of men, the prolific womanizer Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce from TV’s M*A*S*H. The core message of the song: of course boys should play with dolls; you want them to grow up to be loving fathers, don’t you?
Thanks to Thinga-reader Chelsea for the tip when she posted the lyrics in a comment on the dollhouse article.
