    Elmo Book Asks 'Who Wants To Die?'

    Toddler's Talking Elmo Book Asks 'Who Wants To Die?'

    Company Receives Several Complaints

    Family members said 16-month-old Miranda Boll's new book, "Potty Time With Elmo," was supposed to teach an interactive lesson using voice commands.

    However, when the book's buttons are pressed, it reportedly says something it is not supposed to -- "who wants to die?"

    I know. I wonder if a worker did this as a prank or something?
    I wonder how many of these actually made it to the shelves.
    Terrible.

    My daughter has an Elmo toy that used to say "help Elmo". The problem is that it used to talk in the middle of the night. We would be sound asleep and this little voice would call out "help Elmo, help Elmo". It freaked us out, though my daughter got a kick out of it.

    That toy disappeared one day shortly thereafter. I wonder what happened to it??????

    My son has a doll from Monsters Inc. the movie. It randomly sets itself off, often during the night, and say's "What's that over there?' "What are you looking at?"
