Now isn’t this charming?
Until Thursday afternoon, the little toys were on sale to kids around Central Florida -- two towers with a jetliner in between that appears to be crashing into one of the buildings. They come in packages along with candy. [SNIP]
…there is no mistake what the toy represents, especially when you look at the product number on every single toy: 9011. [SNIP]
A company called Lisy Corporation distributes the candy bags. They said they are also offended by the toy and have pulled 17,000 of the toys. [SNIP]
Lisy says they bought the toys, sight unseen, from L and M Import/Export of Miami.According to the WFTV reporter, L and M’s representative doesn’t see what the fuss is about.
We talked to L and M and they say they have no problem at all with the toy and don't consider it offensive at all.[SNIP]
For the second day in a row, the importer of the toy, L&M Import and Export refused to comment. But, they told Channel 9 they didn't think it was a big deal, saying they consider it just a toy for children and don't think it's inappropriate.You know, I usually have some scalding commentary for things like this. However, L and M’s attitude toward this matter speaks for itself.
