Parent Demands Recall on Cursing Toy

A man is demanding that toy store Toys 'R' Us take one of their toys off the shelves after discovering that the one he bought for his 6-year-old son allegedly says a curse word. Philip Morton is convinced that the toy police officer says the curse word when the officer's nightstick is removed. Morton says, "I've had to explain to parents why my son is saying the f-word; it's horrible. It's really a cute little toy; but God forbid, it's not what I want my kid hearing." According to a spokeswoman for toy manufacturer TekNek, the toy actually says "stop". Store managers have declined to stop selling the toy.
