  • 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...

Scientists have found that the microscopic grooves on the ring make up the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' and mark the world's first attempt at a talking doll and the dawn of America's recording industry...

The senior prank gone awry has raised questions of race, prosecutorial zeal and the post-Columbine mindset in a small Indiana town and around the country, The Indianapolis Star reported in its Tuesday editions. Legal experts question the appropriateness of the charges against Morton, and law professor Jonathan Turley at George Washington University...

    Hero Builders An Oxford company has released an action figure inspired by the capture of Osama bin Laden. Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL. The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next -- Rambama. On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders released the Obama SEAL Team 6...

    Is this breastfeeding doll, aimed at young girls, the stuff of a pedophile’s fantasy? Or is it a harmless toy that teaches young girls the importance of nurturing and parenting–skills that she will need in the future? The doll, which hits U.S. stores this spring, is called the Breast Milk Baby, and has already been sold in the European market for a couple of years: A doll that imitates a breast-feeding infant teaches nurturing, the toy’s maker says, but some parents are outraged. Berjuan Toys’ “Breast Milk Baby” comes with a special halter top, ABC News reports. The top has...

    Kohls sells clothing to fit an 18" doll, along with a matching outfit for the girl to wear. Nightgowns seem to be the most popular of these. Only, it seems someone forgot to set the dye! Perspiration from little hands causes the dye to bleed, where it then stains everything those little hands touch. (I work for a doll company, and we've been getting a lot of calls from people whose brand-new dolls are now ruined. Not to mention their sofa, carpet, wallpaper, etc, etc) Further details as they become available.

    Throughout this recession Obama was busy creating jobs — website storefronts, mall shops and street vendors eagerly peddled Obama memorabilia allowing the general public to actually touch the 'birth of hope' and capture his moment in history. Alas, this once seemingly recession-proof industry is now struggling to survive. The Washington Post reports, “Sales peaked at the height of Obamamania, between the election and the inauguration.” “In Union Station, the souvenir shop once dubbed the Obama Store because of its mostly Obama-related selection has closed.

    A controversial new doll is leaving some parents wishing for the good old Cabbage Patch days. A Spanish toymaker known as Berjuan has developed a breast-feeding doll that comes with a special halter top its young "mothers" wear as they pretend to breast-feed their "babies." The halter top has daisies that cover the little girls’ nipples and come undone just as easily as the flaps of a nursing bra would. The doll — called Bebe Gloton, which translates as “gluttonous baby” — makes sucking noises as it "feeds."

    A dark-eyed, veiled doll called Fulla has invaded Arab toy chests, bringing a touch of the Muslim Middle East to a domain once dominated by the blonde blue-eyed Barbie. Fulla, like many Muslim women in the Arab world, has two sets of clothing. Form-fitting, revealing outfits are sported at home, while items that cover the arms, legs, neck and often the hair are donned in public. This concept of two wardrobes, and especially that of the conservative "outdoor" outfits, is what mainly distinguishes the doll from her Western sister. Fulla's clothes include cloaks and prayer outfits that conceal her long...

    Police are searching for a pistol-wielding robber who stole female leather bondage gear and an inflatable sex doll from an erotica store in Milan Wednesday. The clerk at the "Night Shop" speculated that the kinky crook might have been unsatisfied with the payout of his hold-up, which only yielded him about 60 euros ($78). "There was just a little cash," the clerk, who declined to be named, told Reuters by telephone. "Then he took some stuff ... an inflatable doll and a leather outfit for a woman," he said.

    SMELLS LIKE A HATE CRIME... [KJL] ...Or a desperate host. From a reader: Did you see Keith Olberman [Friday] night on MSNBC? After savaging Fox News throughout most of his "newscast" he took a "talking Ann Coulter" doll and literally bashed it, smashing it repeatedly across the edge of his dest with a look of pure hatred on his desk, until it was in pieces. After the break he held up the naked legs and buttocks of the doll and said, "This is all that's left of Ann Coulter." Then he threw it at the camera.

    The bloodied Jack the Ripper doll on the toy shelf at Vancouver's Virgin Megastore is drawing fire from women's groups. They say that in a city still coming to terms with its own serial killer, a doll depicting a man who murdered prostitutes is tasteless. "It doesn't display much sensitivity, does it?" asked Kate Gibson, director of the WISH Drop In Centre for sex-trade workers on the Downtown Eastside. Maggie de Vries, whose sister Sarah is one of the women missing from the streets of the eastside, said the doll suggests that violence against women is acceptable. "When other people...

    Talking Ronald Reagan doll"Mr. Gorbachev...Tear down this wall." "Those doing all the criticizing had their chance. In the four years before we got to Washington they had it all. They had the whole enchilada. They controlled the Presidency, the United States Senate, the House of Representatives, all the committees of Congress and the Executive Branch and hundreds of agencies and departments. They virtually had a free hand, and all they could think to do with that free hand was stick it in your pocket." Plus 9 or 10 others.

    Yo, Joe! Collectors Want Iconic Soldier in National Toy Hall of Fame Mike Branom/Associated Press Jul 3, 2004 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - G.I. Joe fans think it's about time the iconic action figure took its rightful place with the likes of Barbie, Silly Putty and Mr. Potato Head. The little soldier's absence from the National Toy Hall of Fame prompted something of a war cry this weekend at the International G.I. Joe Collectors' Convention in Lake Buena Vista, where triumphant shouts of "Yo, Joe!" gave way to "Why no Joe?" "G.I. Joe has more name recognition than virtually...

    FOR more than a year now Saudi Arabia, the kingdom that sits atop a quarter of the world's oil reserves, has been hit by a wave of terrorism that shows no signs of abating. Until a month ago, it was nothing but "operations against deviants." Now Saudi officials use terms like "conflict" and "war." And after a suicide-bomb attack destroyed the security forces buildings in Riyadh earlier this month, Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz said, "We are waging war against evil-doers." "War" is no exaggeration. According to Saudi sources, kingdom forces have clashed with terrorists at least 80 times...
