A Birmingham mother has been left furious at Amazon for selling her an ‘indecent’ toy for her three-year-old child.
Sally Williams, 24, bought the set of spelling bricks for her toddler son, Jake, as a birthday present last week.
She explained, “I was hoping to help him recognise a few basic words for when he goes into pre-school next year.”
Miss Williams, a part-time supermarket worker, had specifically selected the spelling bricks from the educational toy section of the Amazon website, believing it to be free of filth.
She unpacked them at home and left her son playing with them whilst she went to fetch herself a well-earned cup of tea. She made a shocking discovery upon her return moments later.
She went on, “I was absolutely shocked. There, right in front of me, bold as you like, was the word ‘wanker’!
“Those bricks can also spell ‘c**t’, ‘f**k’, ‘sh*t’ and ‘tw*t’, I checked!
“How can Amazon sell such filth, and to children? Jake is only three, so he shouldn’t be exposed to words like that for at least another two or three years. It’s completely unacceptable.
“I hope Jeff Bezos does something before someone accidentally buys their child these foul bricks for Christmas.
Williams admitted that the bricks have also been used by Jake to create some less offensive words such as ‘cbzat’, ‘brbc’ and ‘voyzt’.
She told us, “I don’t actually know what those other words mean, which I guess means Jake is either a genius, or foreign.
“His English isn’t very good to be honest, so I suppose he might be a foreigner?”
