So much for the “old days” where kid’s toys would teach innocent words like “cow”, “dog”, “rooster” etc. This little girl’s toy taught her something else!
A young Welsh girl playing with her “Peppa Pig Play and Learn Tablet” designed to teach letters and numbers, learned to drop the “F” bomb through its tutelage!
Each of the parents thought the other had dropped the naughty word in front of the daughter, then, they found a common phrase uttered by the tablet that sounds just like, “F*ck you, odd one out”.
The toy manufacturer apologized and is researching the matter.
She has been swearing ever since she started playing it – she has learned it off the toy and says it quite often”.
At first, Ms. Burroughs had the culprit wrong:
“I was accusing her dad of teaching her to swear but it was only when I tried out the tablet that I found one of the activities says ‘find the odd one out’ – but it sounds like “f*** you, odd one out.”
A spokesman for Argo had this to say in a statement:
“We take Miss Burroughs’ concerns regarding the Peppa Pig toy very seriously, and sincerely apologise for any distress this may have caused. We are trying to make contact with the customer directly, and are working with the manufacturer to investigate as a matter of urgency.”
Why would a toy teach this word when there are folks like Dave Chappelle around?!
