Children's Play toy Drops the F-Bomb!

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

A Kissimmee, Florida 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 ABC's 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."

representative from Leapfrog didn't return phone calls about the problem.

A Wal-Mart representative said since a letter key makes a sound it shouldn't, it appears to be a manufacturing error.
