Claims Hatchimals are mumbling swear words in their sleep.
Parents have been horrified to discover these cute little toys have a dark side.
Parents are claiming profanities emit from the cute and cuddly creatures while apparently deep in slumber.
Specifically, some parents claim to have heard their Hatchimals mutter the words “f*** me” as they sleep.
To prove they are not hallucinating, some parents have uploaded videos of the electronic creatures to YouTube.
Responding to the reports, the Canadian-based company that produces Hatchimals, Spin Master, said that the toys were incapable of swearing.
“Hatchimals speak their own language made up of random sounds,” a spokesperson said.
“We can assure you that the Hatchimal is not saying anything inappropriate. The one in the video appears to be sleeping.”
Did your child get one of these toys for Christmas? Have you experienced any issues?
