DAYTON, Ohio – A mother in Ohio is expressing horror after discovering that what appeared to be a pink princess wand that she purchased for her toddler at a local dollar store included a hidden photo of a girl slashing her arm with a knife.
“I’m outraged over it,” parent Nicole Allen told local television station WHIO. “I want to know how they think that is suitable for a child.”
The toy, called an “Evilstick,” looks like a pink wand with a flower or snowflake design at its tip. The handle features a heart design. The packaging itself states that it is “for ages three and up,” and claims, “I can send out wonderful music.”
But after Allen purchased the item for her toddler daughter, and removed the foil that covered the end of the wand, she was shocked to find a photograph of a girl cutting her arm with a knife inside. Additionally, the wand didn’t play music, but rather featured a maniacal, evil laugh.
Local reporters talked to the dollar store owner about the matter, who said that parents need to be more careful about that toys that they purchase for their children.
“The name on it says Evilstick. So, in one way, if I am buying it for my kid–and I have lot of children and I have young ones—I would inspect it before I ever give it to them,” owner Amar Moustafa stated.
