Parents Say Doll Promotes Islam

Ad Feedback

The Fisher Price "Cuddle n' Coo" doll is supposed to make baby noises and say "mama." But some people say that it's saying something else.

Some concerned parents say they hear the toy saying, "Islam is the light."

"It's not saying, coo or Mama," said Carol McCroy. "It's speaking. This doll is not supposed to speak."

McCroy bought the doll for her two-year-old granddaughter. But now she wants to get rid of the toy.

She's not alone. Johanna Kula has already returned the one she bought.

"And at the end of the cooings it clearly says, 'Islam is the light,'" Kula explained.

Parent Company Responds

Mattel, Fisher Price's parent company, says the doll is not a religious toy. They say the toy just babbles.

"I talked with a Mattel rep and she clearly stated to me that I was brain washed by the power of suggestion," Kula recalled.

In a statement Mattel said, "The power of suggestion has a lot to do with it. Our department did extensive tests. It just coos and says 'mama.' We will not be pulling the doll."

Even though the company isn't planning to recall the dolls, another statement on their Website indicates more consumers have alerted them about the problem.

"There is a sound that may resemble something close to the word, night, right, or light," Mattel responded. "To avoid any potential misinterpretation, we have eliminated that segment of sound file from future production."
