IDK if this is a common thing or not, but this was the first time I had ever seen this.
I was at the mall and I saw a little girl, maybe about 8, in a box.
The back of the box was open for air. The girl was just standing there, not moving, having the same expression every time I walked by.
Next to her was I assume her Mom or an adult trying to get parents to get their kids to model.
I've heard of using mannequins, but using your own kid? And forcing them to stay, in a box, same expression, for hours on end?
What the actual fuck?
You can't tell me this kid liked that. What kid likes staying still for hours on end (and we were there for hours) with the same expression, not moving, etc? I walked by quite a few times and she was there each time, a real kid, not a made to look real mannequin, standing there in the same way every time. I know she was a real kid because I asked the lady standing next to the boxed child and she said it was.
I would never, ever make my child do that. Ever.
