From WFTV.com, :
KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Channel 9 has discovered another controversial toy. A local mother took a closer look at the toy and realized something wasn’t right. It’s a toy cell phone with a picture of Osama bin Laden on it with one word above it, “King.”
The toy cell phone is tiny, only about two and a half inches long, and the picture of bin Laden is even smaller. But it infuriated a Kissimmee mother.
Channel 9 has discovered there is a connection between this toy and another toy we’ve told you about.
Two-and-half-year-old Carolina Vega’s dad bought her a cellophane package of toys. He saw the doll, colorful sunglasses and lollipops in the package. He did not spot the picture of the most hated man in America.
Carolina’s mom noticed it after she found the little cell phone in her car.
“Who would sell this knowing America went through this tragedy? Who would put this on a toy for a kid to play with,” she questions.
The girl’s father bought the package at a Hispanic grocery store on 17-92 in Polk County. The owner tells Channel 9 he never noticed exactly what the deliveryman was hanging.
A company called El Club Mexicano, based in Ashboro, N.C., packages and distributes the toy packs. A spokesman tells Channel 9 they stopped shipping them two months ago when they discovered the picture of bin laden. They say they received their shipment from L and M Exports in Miami.
You may remember the name. That’s the same company that shipped a toy depicting a plane spinning between two identical towers, and the serial number on the toy was 0911.
