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!
