( 4UMF NEWS ) Foul-Mouthed Doll Curses:
The dolls, called the You and Me Interactive Play & Giggle Triple Dolls, sell for $39.99 at Toys “R” Us and have gotten mixed reviews on the retailer’s website since complaints first surfaced last year about one of the doll’s swearing problem.
“She is a potty mouth,” Rose Pickens told KHOU. ”She actually says the ‘B’ word. I just never paid attention to what the dolls say. They say mama and dada, and this particular day she said you crazy b*tch.”
The retailer denies any problem with the toy.
“Please be assured that we would not carry a doll that uttered profanity of any kind,” Katie Reczek, a spokesperson for Toys “R” Us, told KHOU. “We are aware that some customers believe they are hearing something else spoken by one of the dolls in the set, when, in fact, the doll is uttering baby babble.”
Pickens said the manager of the store where she bought the dolls has offered her in-store credit in response to her complaints but the Houston mom told KHOU that’s not enough.
“I want these dolls removed from the shelves,” Pickens said. “We teach our children at an early age, there are certain things you don’t say.”
I want this doll. You crazy bitch…
