LeapPad Saying More Than You Bargained For?

Parents, get ready to listen to this: A popular childhood learning toy could be saying something you don't want your young kids to hear.

One local family says the toy, Leapfrog's "A Collection from the LeapPad Library," is saying the word "penis."

They say it happens when you touch a dinner ham.

The family called Leapfrog, but was told there was no recall.

Now Keisha Martin wants to let other parents know to listen up.

"It does concern me that they might go to school and start talking about it, or that they're going to say something about it. The little one I really don't want running around the house saying it," said Martin.

Calls to Leapfrog by TV3 were not returned.

Martin says she's had the toy for about a year.
