A couple of months back I ran this deeply troubling story of Mattel's BABY DOLLIE TALKING DAWAH ....bwahahaha. You tube removed the video I originally linked to but regular Atlas readers remember the blond, blue-eyed baby doll spouting Islamic propaganda, "Islam is the Light" - listen to the slowed down version here: Download Lil_Mommie_Coo_Original_slowed31K.wav Randall ulpoaded a better one with Audacity - it's definitely a woman, foe shizzle.

Mattel refuses to remove secret "Islamic" doll that tries to convert children; but wages jihad against competitor to remove Bratz dolls from retailer shelves for Christmas - insists all Bratz dolls be "impounded and destroyed." Mattel - the Real Grinch that stole Christmas. November 10, 2008: Mattel wants Bratz dolls banned
Fred Taub over at Boycott Watch has put together a comprehensive post on the boycott and protests we will be staging at stores that won't take that thing off the shelves. Taub fact checks boycott calls so people can get both sides of the story and decide for themselves what the truth is. He is an expert in boycotts, including the Arab boycott of Israel.
Summary: Examination of audio in a doll indicates Fisher Price / Mattel doll is been used to promote Islam to children without parents knowledge.
On October 7, 2008, Debbie Schlussel broke the story about the Fisher Price (Mattel) marketing the Little Mommy Cuddle & Coo Doll, a doll that she claims states "Islam is the Light" (See: INDOCTRI-Nation: Fisher-Price Doll Tells Your Kids, "Islam is the Light")
In response, on October 7, Mattel, the parent company of Fisher Price, issued a press release on their website stating:
Statement by: Mattel, Inc.
Re: Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo Dolls
The Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls feature realistic baby sounds including cooing, giggling, and baby babble with no real sentence structure. The only scripted word the doll says is "mama."
There is a sound that may resemble something close to the word "night, right, or light." To avoid any potential misinterpretation, we have eliminated that segment of the sound file from future production.
Because the original sound track is compressed into a file that can be played through an inexpensive toy speaker, actual sounds may be imprecise or distorted.
We remain confident in the high quality standards of our Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls. If consumers have any questions or concerns regarding any Mattel or Fisher-Price toys, they may contact our consumer relations center at 800.524.TOYS (8697) and we will be happy to assist them.
We take every call from our consumers very seriously and do our best to help address their concerns
--- End of Mattel statement
This week, a group calling itself Moms Asking Mattel for Accountability is planning protests outside of several stores nationally, as parents have recently discovered the doll on store shelves while they happened to pass by the doll with a built-in proximity detector. The protests are scheduled for Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when many retailers make their money for the year during the Christmas shopping frenzy.
Boycott Watch contacted Mattel / Fisher Price, but found itself at a brick wall. Juliette Reashor (firstname.lastname@example.org) the Senior Manager for Public Relations at Fisher-Price was able to send us a statement, but essentially refused to even hear our questions and then tried to derail our questions by asking for our sources, which we obviously refused to reveal.
Boycott Watch took the liberty of examining the audio posted on the Mattel website and found that the there were several segments of audio, all divided by short moments of total silence, indicating that the audio was in fact most likely recorded in a professional studio or at the very least in professional studio conditions. The last segment of the audio was clearly compressed and sped up audio. While we were unable to totally reverse the compression and pitch changes, we were able to slow down the audio to reveal, in our opinion, that the audio clearly stated "Islam is the light." We posted that audio here, both regular and slowed down, so you can decide for yourself what the audio contains.
When we examined the audio graphically, there is a definite clear "T" at the end of the word "Light," which you can see circled in the following graphic.
To us, this indicates the audio is not a "misinterpretation" as Mattel states. Rather, we believe that anyone with basic audio editing software and skills will come to the conclusion that this was, in fact, actual words spoken, and that the words "Islam is the light" were intentionally placed in the audio cut.
Questions now remain: What is Mattel's Quality Assurance procedure for imported and domestic goods? Since Mattel was able to conduct a simple examination of the audio we did, did they in fact examine of audio once a complaint was made? If no, why not? If yes, why did they do nothing? If there was a reason to examine the audio, which there clearly was, why didn't they examine the audio or act upon that examination?
The Mattel press release stated: "The Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls feature realistic baby sounds including cooing, giggling, and baby babble with no real sentence structure. The only scripted word the doll says is "mama."
Boycott Watch asks our readers to listen to the slowed down audio here and tell us if you hear "Islam is the light."
The Mattel press release continues: "There is a sound that may resemble something close to the word "night, right, or light." To avoid any potential misinterpretation, we have eliminated that segment of the sound file from future production."
Based on our examination of the audio, Boycott Watch believes these words are willfully inserted, not the happenstance of an infinite number of monkeys in a room with typewriters. We also believe that Mattel was the victim of a trick, but one they could have avoided by doing simple quality assurance examinations, and later recalls.
I will have more details on the boycott and protests shortly.
