GRANITEVILLE, S.C. -- A Graniteville mother is outraged after listening to a talking baby doll Santa gave her daughter for Christmas.

She says one of the Toys "R" Us "You and Me Interactive Play and Giggle Triplet Dolls" has a potty mouth.

Ciji Johnson says her 4-year-old daughter Ka'Mari asked Santa for the dolls for Christmas.

"That's all she talked about triplets, the babies," she said.

Santa brought little Ka'Mari the dolls for Christmas. The three dolls giggle, cry and say "ma-ma'' and "da-da." Johnson says it took a few days for her to notice that the triplet in pink did more than just babble baby talk.

"She said you crazy b*tch," Johnson said.

Johnson says she was shocked when she heard the innocent-looking doll curse her.

"I threw the baby down and said, 'Oh my God, oh my God,'" she said.

Johnson isn't the only parent to say the doll has a potty mouth. Toys "R" Us has a long list of complaints about the pink "You and Me Interactive Play and Giggle Triplet Dolls."

The company told News 12 in a statement: "We do not sell dolls that curse. We have no plans to take it off the shelf."

Johnson says she is keeping the doll away from her impressionable girls.

"We don't curse in the house in this house. I'm sure not going to bring a doll baby in here and use foul language," she said.

Toy "R" Us says anyone wishing to return the dolls can do so at the store.

    Seriously People? Doll is not cussing......Your hearing what the media is telling you the doll is saying. A quick look on the web reveals what its actually saying.

    This doll has a potty mouth. I am sure it is not too hard for TRU to change out the voice mechanism for this doll but replace it until that happens.
