A young girl was subjected to filthy language and racial slurs because her Disney princess walkie-talkie is stuck on a truckers' frequency.
The 9-year-old, from Kent in Washington, was shocked to hear trash talk coming from her bright pink toy immediately after switching it on.

And her stepmom Jennifer Childress revealed that, as the gadget only has one setting, it's impossible to shut the salacious chat off.
"We picked up some things that she shouldn't be hearing, or any child should be hearing," Childress told Seattle's KCPQ.

The candy-colored kid's communication device uses a frequency of 27.145 megahertz.

Along with being used by remote controlled toy cars and wireless computer keyboards and mice, it's also used by CB radios usually in the hands of long-distance truck drivers.

Childress now plans to contact the Federal Communications Commission to complain.

You buy a toy that operates on frequency set asside for anyone to use and you complain about overhearing something unpleasent.

Would this have made the news if they were the plain black walkie talkies, that had only one frequency, I used with my friends when I was akid.

My kid has these. I never heard any truckers, but that's likely because they eat a pair of double A batteries in about a half hour and I'm slow to replace them.

This happened with my kids Sesame Street walkie talkies. I heard the f bomb like 4 times before I had a chance to shut them off. My kids are now only able to use them at the cabin since the highway with the truckers is far away so far so good.

What a bunch of morons.

I bet they contacted the Better Business Bureau when their coffee from McDonalds burned them because it was hot, as well.

:rotfl2: :rotfl:

That complaint will last all of about a second and half before it is filed in the cylindrical filing cabinet...

New federal law!!! No foul language on Ch 15 of your CB radio, so you don't offend this lady... :faint: ::yes::

Attention Kent, Washington parents:

Your 9 year old snowflake already knows all those words from schoolmates, and is busy teaching the 8 year olds.

On the other hand, Disney has so much money and power maybe they CAN get truckers to stop swearing.
:scratchin

Oh, I'm familiar. Wasn't necessarily what I was referring to, I was more in general saying they are morons. Everybody wants to sue someone because of their own mistakes.
