oh, dear..
it seems like an extremely ill-advised product line, considering what happened before.
It's good that they pulled the product, girls that young shouldn't be wearing stuff like that yet anyway.

The retailer came under fire in 2002 for selling thong underwear in children's sizes with the words "eye candy" and "wink wink" printed on the front. The line of underwear was subsequently pulled from their kids' stores.
