When good toys go bad: Little Mermaid doll may call you a "**bleep**"(now with video)

15 replies 1 views Edited Dec 18, 2006
We're not sure if Ariel here got into the same stuff that made Asimo unable to stand on its own two feet, but according to a shocked (shocked!) mom in San Jose, the previously innocent Little Mermaid Shimmering Lights Ariel doll has turned potty mouth, reportedly adding the phrase "you're a **bleep**" to its usual repertoire of pleasantries. Ever the investigative journalists, the folks at ABC News decided to get to the bottom of this controversy themselves, buying a doll and shooting a video of the profanity in question. As the video shows, however, this doesn't appear the result of a mischievous toymaker trying to corrupt young minds by slipping in a little surprise before the doll runs off the assembly line, with the offending phrase just barely recognizable and more than likely the result of the power of suggestion -- which must also explain why our Roomba seems to keep calling us a slob.
