Dolls Say the Darndest Things

Islam is the light

No Fisher Price toys will be on my shopping list this year as I shop for my four grandchildren under six.  Here’s why:

My granddaughter’s cute Fisher Price Little Mommy Real Loving Baby Cuddle and Coo doll says “Islam is the light.”  No kidding!

I wasn’t the only one to hear this clearly enunciated phrase among the garbled baby talk at Meghan’s 5th birthday party on Saturday.  As the doll was passed from grown-up to grown-up so we each could put the doll to our ear and listen for ourselves, it was repeatedly confirmed.  When I got home from the party, I went straight to my computer to do a google search for “Islam is the light doll.”   It turns out that we’re not the only ones to hear it, because this issue was widely reported in blogs, news reports and videos that I had previously overlooked.

No one wants to believe that Fisher Price is deliberate in this, but the doll has not been recalled and there’s nothing on their website or the doll packaging to disclose this to customers.  Online reports of people contacting Fisher Price about this matter indicate they were “blown off” by the company. 

Under the circumstances, the best solution may be to help Fisher Price “see the light” by leaving their toys on the shelf this holiday season. Perhaps in the future, they’ll make sure their dolls’ vocabularly is limited to “coo” and “momma.”
