Toys In The Hood

By Wyatt Earp | November 20, 2011

A few years ago, there was a national uproar about a talking Teletubbies doll. The doll, Po, appeared to be saying “faggot, faggot” in a sweet little voice. We have the doll at home, and I can tell you that it certainly sounds like that’s what it’s saying.

Today, there is a new toy outrage, this time at the You And Me Interactive Triplets. Allegedly, one of the triplets says, “Hey, crazy bitch.”

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.

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 receipt, if they find it offensive.

Oh, I am so getting these for Julia’s birthday!

    There’s a retired lieutenant (CPD) that deserves this one.

    Why? Because everyone in the unit said it.

    I also should have said there was more than one, but believe me she was the ULTIMATE.

    Sounds like Michelle Obama has given toymakers new guidelines, too!

    Sounds like the doll – or perhaps one of its programmers – is a Buck Cherry fan…

    (Might be just a tad NSFW… ;) )

    Marvin – Express one to Nancy Pelosi.

    LDIV – I had a sergeant like that in patrol. She has since (naturally) been promoted to lieutenant.

    Proof – Nicely done.

    Jon – Or, “Hey, jerkass!”

    Old NFO – I wonder if they say that in Spanish or French?

    Wes S. – That’s awesome.
