Toy Wand Shows Photo of Girl Cutting Herself
This Toy Wand Is Anything but Magical
If you thought Chucky was the most demonic toy in the world, think again. Nicole Allen was horrified when she discovered that a toy wand designed for kids 3 and up contained a photo of a young girl slitting her wrist. The Ohio mother picked up the toy for her 2-year-old daughter at a local Dollar Store, as the packaging promised wonderful music, fairies, and fun. But when her daughter began to play with the toy, Allen heard something similar to a witch's cackle. She then pulled back the foil on the wand, revealing the terrifying image.
"I'm outraged," Allen tells a local news station. "I want to know how they think that is suitable for a child."
When asked about the now-controversial toy, Dollar Store owner Amar Moustafa said Allen should have been paying more attention to her purchase.
"The name on it is 'Evil Stick,'" Moustafa says. "If I was buying it for my kid, I would inspect it before I even give it to them." Moustafa adds that he has no intention of removing the toy from his store, unless he receives a direct complaint from a customer. Though there's a good chance this item won't be flying off the shelves anytime soon.
