You don’t mean this seriously, do you? (I mean the call for their removal, not the fact stated in the second sentence!)
Yeah, I mean it. Replace them with Irish children.

English children aren't represented by Hobbits. German children aren't represented by trolls. Etc...

It was lazy of the Imagineers of the time to put in leprechauns.

"Hey, Blaine, what's the traditional dress for the Irish?

"Dunno, just make 'em leprechauns."

But the display already includes Irish children (if that’s how we’re supposed to interpret the dolls—I guess I never really saw them as kids before). The leprechauns are additional place-making characters, not much different from the animals that feature throughout the attraction.

Well, don't get me started on how the Africa room has underrepresented nations, but plenty of animals!!

Imagine cutting out half the European dolls and replacing them with deer and goats.
