Philip Morton says he doesn't want his son hearing curse words, especially from his toys. Morton wants Toys 'R Us to remove a popular toy off the shelves because he says one he bought for his six-year-old son utters a bad word.
The toy is a police officer set that includes a nightstick and a utility belt. A recorded message that includes the word plays when the nightstick is removed from the belt.
Morton returned the toy and received a set that didn't include
the obscene word. The store has declined to stop selling the toy.
The manufacturer also says it won't pull the toy, but will
examine Morton's complaint. A company spokesman says the recorded
voice actually says "stop" instead of a curse word. The voice is
an adult's, while the other recordings are those of children.
