Parents shocked as talking doll teaches child useful lesson of 'f*** it'
As you know, 99% of all the advice ever given is thoroughly useless. However, some parents were horrified when their 2-year-old daughter found that her My Little Baby Born Nappy Time doll was dishing out potty-mouthed, but ultimately useFUL advice.
Anthony Burridge and Sarah Williams bought their daughter Emily the toy, and it was meant to gurgle and mutter nonsense, like babies do. However, this doll was saying "f***" and "f*** it" over and over.
Burridge said: "We opened the packaging on the doll and handed it to Emily. She was so excited to play with her new toy but as soon as she pressed its belly, we heard it say the swear word. Sarah and I were gobsmacked. When we played it again, it was clear that it was saying "f***". We've had to take it away from her but it is too late. Emily is only two but already copying the doll."
"She keeps saying "f*** it" - I don't know how to stop her."
Have you finished laughing? The toy was bought from Toys R Us, who of course, aren't really responsible, but will no doubt be really embarrassed by all this.
Williams added: "Emily has always loved changing nappies and as soon as we got into the shop, she made a beeline for the dolls. Seeing her face light up as she picked the doll made me so happy. The doll was meant to cry every time you pushed her belly button and I couldn't wait to see Emily play with her when we got home."
"When we first heard the doll swear, we couldn't believe it. We had to play it again to make sure we were hearing right."
Burridge continued: "Hearing our two-year-old daughter swearing every day is just awful. I think it's disgraceful that Toys R Us have sold us such a dirty toy."
A spokesman for Toys R Us said they are 'looking into the matter', while the company that made the toy - Zapf Creation - said: "Zapf Creation prides itself on making high quality products that children can play with and love and BABY born is one of our most popular brands, having been around over 24 years."
"With the aim of teaching young children about nappy changing, my little BABY born Nappy Time only makes "baby babble" sounds and does not say any actual words. We apologise if any customers feel that this babble resembles anything inappropriate."
Anyway, have a look at the Daily Mail's video where you can watch a toddler swear her little head off.
