Baby babble or bad word? Doll prompts cussing complaints

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A child's doll set, sold at Toys-R-us, is stirring up controversy. Some have said one of the babies can be heard using profanity. Toys-R-Us says that is not the case.

KSLA News 12 purchased a set and showed the doll to some Christmas shoppers. Everyone we found thought they heard the doll say the "B-word".

"Yeah, I know what that said. I wouldn't let my kid play with that. Heck no," said one shopper.

"Did that just say b***h? That's what I heard. It sounded like it," said another shopper.

KSLA contacted Toys-R-Us, the distributor and parent company of the toy maker about the concerns raised. A spokesperson says Toys-R-Us would never sell a toy that uses profanity, and what you're hearing is baby babble.

KSLA News 12 purchased the toy for $43.59 at the Toys-R-Us in Bossier City. Toys-R-Us has no plans to remove the toy from their shelves.
