An Ontario grandmother who bought an educational toy for her 15-month-old granddaughter was shocked when the dancing cactus started swearing and singing about doing cocaine. Ania Tanner told a Toronto TV station: “This is not what I ordered for my granddaughter.” The cactus was sold on Walmart’s website as an educational toy for about $26 and sings songs in English, Spanish and Polish.
… Tanner, who is Polish, said when she listened to the Polish lyrics, the cactus was singing about doing cocaine, drug abuse, suicide, depression and used profanities. The song is by Polish Rapper Cypis, who is reportedly unaware his song was used by the Chinese manufacturer of the children’s toy.
… Walmart said the item was sold by a third-party seller on its marketplace website and had removed the toy.
