It's pretty much old hat now...Halloween has become less about the "scare" factor and more about the "sexy" factor. And Wal-mart's recent choices are kind of both.

First, the costume for toddler girls called the "Naughty Leopard". Admittedly, there's nothing age-inappropriate about the costume itself, but Wal-mart caught flack for the name. They stopped selling it shortly after the "story" broke.


Now, the boys are under attack...with a costumer called "Demented Doctor" that's aimed at boys as young as seven. The blood-spattered lab coat...the crazy red mask...the enormous syringe...

What do you think? Are people overreacting? It IS Halloween after's supposed to be scary. But...for a 7 year old? Thoughts?
