    Toddler Toy Teaches Alphabet, Drops F-Bomb

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- A toy designed to help children learn the alphabet is swearing like a sailor instead.

    A Kissimmee, Fla., grandfather discovered the problem in the Leapfrog Alphabet Pal Caterpillar.

    Children can press the caterpillar's legs to teach them the alphabet, but Knutty Frye discovered the right combination of buttons seems to turn the ABCs into vulgarities.

    Frye contacted the company, but he said they didn't share his concern.

    "I was told to take it back to the store I got it from and get my money back," Frye said. "There was no concern at all to the fact it was saying bad words."

    A representative from Leapfrog did not return phone calls from WESH, the NBC affiliate in Orlando, Fla.
    A Wal-Mart representative said the problem appeared to be a manufacturing error.

    I hear the same type of story (possibly a different product) a few years ago. Somebody on the 'inside,' must be having a little fun
