Elmo Death Threat. Freaky toys unite and Fisher Price sucks.

by mssinglemama on February 23, 2008

You know the drill. Dinner. Bathtime. Bedtime. Clean up time … it’s when your child’s dolls and gizmos come alive in a chorus of freaky phrases as you put them away…”come play with me”… “let’s sing!”…”Kill (insert child’s name here).” Yep. A mother in Florida replaced the batteries in her son’s Fisher Price Elmo Knows Your Name doll and now instead of saying “Hi James,” he’s saying “Kill James.” And yes, her son is repeating it – over and over and over again.

Here’s the Death Threat Elmo Video:

And here’s something Elmo would NEVER do.

(Elmo in this story is the Fisher Price public relations team)

James: Can I have a new you, Elmo? You’re telling me you’re going to kill me.

Elmo: Elmo is sorry but Elmo can’t give you a new doll until you mail me away…for two weeks.

James: Two weeks? What’s two weeks, Elmo.

Elmo: It’s a really long time for a two year old, oh yeah and Elmo wants to kill you!

The real conversation (between Fisher Price and the mom)

She called Fisher Price, they ignored her. After this story aired they said they’d give her a voucher for a new doll…but only if she mails in the original which will take at least two weeks.

I put my son’s blankie in the washer the other night and it was as if I’d just ripped his heart out with a surated knife. Fisher Price should be mailing her a new doll or hand delivering one. Jerks. I am going to boycott Fisher Price indefinitely. Because that’s what the real Elmo would do.

Uh, why doesn’t she just reset/reprogram the doll?

She said she was “scared it would say something worse!”

Fisher-Price has a new doll called Little Mommy. On the package it says that the doll “coos and gurgles” and “Says mommy.” Read that list again and see if there is any mention of “Also says ‘Islam is the light.’” I thought my sister was crazy when she told me that her daughter’s new doll, purchased 11/4/08 at a local Wal-Mart, says that exact phrase. I thought that this must be along the same lines as playing records backwards and you’ll hear a death threat kind of thing. I have heard it. It says it plainly. I called Fisher Price. All I got was, “The doll is not programmed to say that, but we are aware of it. We will be recalling them to remove the chip. I’m not sure when.” Meanwhile, those very dolls are sitting on the local Wal-Mart shelf. If the doll is “not programmed to say it,” then what? Is it possessed like Chucky?? I am advocating a boycott of anything Fisher Price and Wal-Mart. I also think that we are owed an explanation of how this happened and who is responsible for it. Thanks for letting me vent.
