    Plano Man Says Doll's Babble Sounds Like "Islam is the Light"

    Fisher-Price said the Little Mommy Cuddle and Coo doll uses "realistic baby sounds" with no real sentence structure.

    A Plano man says a Fisher-Price doll sounds like it is saying, "Islam is the light."

    Fisher-Price said the Little Mommy Cuddle and Coo doll uses "realistic baby sounds" with no real sentence structure. In a statement, the company said the only scripted word the dolls says is "mama."

    But parent Sandy Richards said he heard the words from the doll he bought a 2-year-old girl.

    "It says Islam is the light," he said. "It's unmistakable."

    Richards said he doesn't think the doll is appropriate for young children.

    "If they wanted to learn that, then I'm sure they can do so at a later date," he said.

    Richards said it was disconcerting to hear the sounds from the doll "every third track."

    Fisher-Price said one of the doll's sounds may sound similar to the words "night, right or light."

    The company said that segment of the sound file will be eliminated from future productions of the doll.

    The toy company said the actual sounds may be "imprecise or distorted" because they are compressed into a file that can be played on an inexpensive toy speaker.

    Richards said the toy company should take the dolls off the shelves, but Fisher-Price said it does not plan a recall.
