Action Figure Teaches Child to Curse
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.
If you know how children repeat almost anything, you understand the angst of a North Carolina man. Philip Morton's son has an action figure from what's called the Elite Operations Role Play Set: Police. It's a talking toy.
And according to Mr. Morton when you take the cop's nightstick off his belt, the action figure says the F word. Toys R Us blames this on a faulty microchip. And you can imagine the word they used when they heard about this.
It's MORNING EDITION.
