It can be a problem for parents to take their toddlers to drag shows.
There is a toy that will suit every baby, no matter their personality.
On December 24th, Ashley Lynn took to TikTok with a colossal consumer complaint. For Christmas, her grandmother bought her nine-month-old son a toy remote control. The handheld gizmo features fun-looking buttons, including a number pad. Ashley points out in her video, “It’s a kid’s toy. There’s a baby on the box.”
The New York Post’s description for the $29.95 Toy’s ShopHQ reads:
The Light-up toy was remote for toddlers and kids with ABC songs, stories, music, and fun sound effects and buttons with different shapes and textures. … Baby remote control toy lets baby’s curiosity take itself [sic] to develop its exploration…to learn the world. … Colorful buttons introduce colors, and numbers to keep your child’s attention. Learning remotely helps the baby discover cause and effect, and develop his cognitive and thinking ability.
Ashley’s grandmother didn’t purchase the remote at ShopHQ; she got it from good ol’ Walmart. On Christmas Eve, Ashley unwrapped the gift and installed the batteries. Her tiny tot went immediately to town “pressing the buttons” and “chewing on” it.
But Ashley’s mother made a claim soon that was hard to believe.
“My mom hears something, and she calls us all in and is like, ‘It just said something about a drive-by shooting.’”
Ashley looked at her mother’s gadget and realized she was right. “It says on the box it tells jokes,” she explains.
Ashley shows the comic delivery of the online toy. A button push prompts the following for bib-wearing breastfeeding mothers who want to be comedians.
Tom said to his friend that his brother worked with 10,000 people. My friend replied, “Wow.”
“Okay, kind of funny,” Ashley admits. “But still — for a baby?”
Then she plays the clip that perked her mom’s ears. It’s instructive for any infant entertainers intending to add some edge to their acts:
Then she plays the clip that woke her mom up.
“You’ll never guess what makes a ‘clip-clop, clip-clop, bang-bang, clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop’ noise. An Amish drive-by shooting.”
And then, for all those diapered, little-bitty Lenny Bruces:
“How many Catholic priests are required to screw a light bulb into a socket? Two — one to do the screwing, and one to hear the confession.”
Ashley doesn’t laugh.
“Sold at Walmart. Walmart, explain this. (Tokyo manufacturer) Linsay Toys, explain this.”
She asked, “Do I have a case, lawyers?” “Please help me. ”
Walmart replied by saying it had opened an inquiry and that toys would “stop selling”.
Fox News Digital reached out to the legendary retailer to provide a statement.
This item was listed by an outside third-party seller and removed from our site because it does not comply with our prohibited product policy. … Like other major retailers, we operate an online marketplace that allows third-party sellers to offer merchandise through our eCommerce platform. Walmart strives to maintain a marketplace that customers can trust.
The toy’s foul funny bone isn’t so surprising. After all, according to experts, babies aren’t what they used to be.
