2.0 out of 5 stars sending it back; weird phrases, November 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VTech Switch & Go Dinos - Sliver the T-Rex Dinosaur (Toy)
My son asked for this from Santa after seeing the commercial on t.v. So I ordered it, "played" with it, and now will have to send it back. I really didn't like some of the phrases that they put on this toy. He says things like, "Obey your king", "cower in fear", "rub my feet, and massage my tail". He has over 50 phrases and some are neat, educational facts about the T-Rex. I just wish they'd have left it at that. In the car form he says, "I drive Angry!" and "This is MY road!" I thought some of those phrases were just too odd, (not to mention rude), and not appropriate for my 5 year old, (I don't want him repeating them!)
I love V-tech toys so didn't hesitate to buy this one, but it was a big disappointment.

totally agree. seems extremely inappropriate. my son still repeats the phrase "i drive angry!". not really sure these are the kinds of messages we should be sending our kids.

Thank you for the parenting advice. You really are the cooooooolest girl EVER! Even though your tip is extremely valuable and something I've never even thought of before, (telling him not to do something I don't want him to do --imagine that!!), I've always felt it's my job to keep influences away from my son that I feel are inappropriate. Am I going to be able to control every single little thing? Nope. But I will wherever I can.
That aside, I don't really understand how my review has anything to do with teaching my child right from wrong, (which is something any parent pretty much does all day long, by the way), The purpose of my review was to share with other parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc the phrases the toy says, because I wish I had known before I made the purchase. It was not to judge anyone else or tell them how to parent. If they wish to purchase the toy for their kids, then by all means, go for it. I just made the decision for MY child to return it. I don't see what your comment has to contribute to my review whatsoever.
