‘Cursing’ Baby Doll Upsets Parents

I may have to have one of these….

I would have loved it if these had been around when my friends had small children.  I would have known exactly what to give them for Christmas then!

Instead, I may just go buy a few for selected friends now….

Of course, people are freaking out and making much ado over nothing…

A talking baby doll available at Toys “R” Us is upsetting some parents, who claim it has a potty mouth.

Some customers are calling for the “You & Me Interactive Play & Giggle Triplet Dolls” to be pulled from shelves because they say one of the dolls can be heard uttering, “You crazy bitch.”

“I did hear that. I wouldn’t want that for my child. Definitely not,” Denise Altschule told FOX23 in Tulsa, Okla.

Another mother told WJXT-TV in Jacksonville, Fla., that she feared her son could pick up the curse word from the doll. “I don’t want him repeating what’s on there,” she said.

The dolls, which are intended for children 2 and up, are being sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores. A Toys “R” spokeswoman told FOX23 that the retail store has not received widespread complaints and said the offending phrase is just baby talk.
