Report: Elmo Doll Threatens To Kill Toddler
This is something I'd have to hear to believe.
It sounds like something the talking doll Chucky from the movies might say: "Kill James!" Instead, a Florida family says the threat to their toddler is coming from a talking Elmo doll.
The Bowman family, of Lithia, Fla., said an Elmo doll belonging to their 2-year-old son, James, began to spout death threats towards him after they changed its batteries, TBO.com reports.
The Elmo Knows Your Name Doll started saying "Kill James!" in a sing-song voice, the site reports.
"It's not something that really you would think would ever come out of a toy," James' mother, Melissa, told the site. "But once I heard, I was just kind of distraught."
The toy's manufacturer, Fisher-Price, said it will issue the Bowmans a voucher for a replacement doll, TBO.com reports.

Yeah, I'd need to hear this. I wonder if it's supposed to be saying something else and it sounds like that, or if it's just wearing down or something...

Holy smokes it is! BUT...
didn't the video say something about the doll can be hooked to a coomputer and programmed to say certain things?

Awww...Elmo is so sweet. I'm going to guess there's a twelve-year-old hacker playing tricks on baby brother.
Now if it was Barney...well, that'd be pretty scary!

That is freaky, but I think someone programmed the doll to say that.
