Some videos have popped out online in which you can either hear Hatchimals mumble when they hatch. There are videos where they use actual profanity words when they are working.
The whole thing has gone viral which means everyone are now trying to do it. Some parents even claim the toy drops the F-word while it sleeps.
That’s not possible, says Spin Master, the manufacturer of the toys. “Hatchimals do not curse, nor do they use foul language. They communicate by speaking their own unique language, which is made up of random sounds, and by making other noises, including shivering when they’re cold and snoring while they sleep”, says Spin Master in a statement to BuzzFeed.
But what about the Hatchimals which clearly say swear words? Well, any owner of the toys know you can teach them to talk. So, they can and will repeat some words you say to them. If you swear a lot, they will swear, too.
The moral of the story is to be a bit more polite in your daily lives. Then, maybe, your toys won’t swear back to you. And also, which company in their right mind would jeopardize their entire business by trying to be cheeky and “hide” something like that in a toy? No one, that’s who.
