Parents: Cursing baby doll should not be sold (FReeper Parental Warning)

ORLANDO, Fla. -

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 b****."

"Oh, absolutely. She's calling them a crazy b****," 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.

There was a similar situation with another doll a few years ago. After the "babytalk" was aired it was obvious the words were nothing like they were being represented.

Until I hear it for myself, I'll take this with a grain of salt.

I will buy that answer. The chinese really need someone in quality control for this to happen.

Take a listen to the lady in the video @ 1:04

"I don't want him repeating what's on there"

And take a look at the lady in the video @ 1:10

"I think that they should be burned and I'd like to know who the company is because I'd like to write them a letter"

The v-tech I can kind of understand because you have to know the buttons to push and the rate to push them to get this to happen.

The doll is inexcusable.

So you are saying this was done on purpose? I have no knowledge of the technology to make these things talk. I just have to take your word for it.

“Parents: Cursing baby doll should not be sold (FReeper Parental Warning)”

How about those parents choose not to BUY IT? Novel thought, liberty.

people hear what they choose to hear

Call the "Ghost Adventures" crew! They'll analyze the audio with the accuracy of their EVP interpretations! You hear a bunch of garbled static coming from the recorder, but what does the GA crew hear?

No doubt about that. Sheesh.

I just listened to the audio, it was played three times in that videoclip. I didn't pick up the word "crazy" at all. The second word - IF it was a word at all, other than gibberish - definitely began with the sound of "b," but to my ears it's unclear whether the remainder of the sound is meant to be the word "b****."

Ear of the beholder on this one.

Good job Mom. Tell the world your son plays with dolls.
I wonder if her son has gotten to the point when he can repeat his Mom's favorite swear word?

True, but if it's not "Hey, Crazy Bitch!" - then what IS that baby supposed to be saying? Alternatives?

Didn't some auto manufacturer have a problem with something like this? The audio warnings were altered by someone so instead of 'Please fasten your seat belt' the message was 'Buckle up dumbass' [not the exact phrase, but you get the idea].

No. But someone in the united states should have caught this problem before it went on the shelf.

Lady, if he was my kid, I'd be more concerned about him playing with a baby doll!

Her son is going to have more problems than that in the future if he continues playing with baby dolls.

I think the mother hears “crazy b*tch” because she can identify with being called that.

I think the woman at the end who wants to send them a letter should include a photo. That’ll stop that nonsense.

I would bet 10 to 1, the creaters of the perv messages within this corporation are homosexuals.
