[Orlando] Nationally sold baby dolls are causing a controversy because some say the toys utter a bad word. The “You & Me Interactive Triplets,” which are being sold at Toys R Us stores in Orlando, are causing the uproar because one of the dolls can be heard saying what appears to be the phrase, “Hey, crazy bitch.” “Oh, absolutely. She’s calling them a crazy bitch,” Kathy Wetter said. The dolls are recommended for children ages 2 and older, and there is no warning of explicit language on the packaging. Toys R Us said it has received a number of complaints about the doll but added that the doll is just making baby talk. A mother told Local 6 News that she’s worried her son might say the bad word. “I don’t want him repeating what’s on there,” she said. Toys R Us said it has no plans to take the doll off its shelves, but told Local 6 News that it would allow customers to return the toy with a reciept, if they find it offensive. “I think they should be burned, and I would like to write the (toy maker) a letter,” another woman said.
Make no mistake about it – this baby is most certainly saying ‘crazy bitch’. I don’t know exactly how the manufacturers could argue or justify it, but I’m all ears. I don’t see what the big deal is though. I’m sure kids across America hear or see a lot worse when mom is bitching about the bills or dad is answering her questions about where he was all night with a backhand. (more…)
