'Princess Wand' Reveals Image Of Girl Cutting Wrist

Well this is just weird.

'Princess Wand' Reveals Image Of Girl Cutting Wrist

DAYTON, Ohio (WHIO) — An Ohio mother is upset after she bought a “princess wand” for her daughter, but the toy revealed a disturbing image.



Nicole Allen bought what she thought was a princess wand from a dollar store earlier this week. A piece of foil came off the wand, and underneath there was a disturbing image of a girl cutting her wrists with a knife.



Allen said the toy's packaging included a fairy, but the store owner told WHIO-TV the toy is called an “evil stick,” so the mother should have realized what she was buying.

The store owner said he would take the wands off the shelves if he receives more complaints.

She is cutting her forearm, not her wrist. Plus, she is cutting horizontally instead of vertically, so she can't even commit suicide correctly.

It's "down the road" not "across the street". Geez, teen girls today...

It's called "evilstick" and this mom was surprised because SHE thought it was a "princess wand".

Regardless it's a pretty fucked up toy.

What the heck is an "Evil Stick" anyway? I never heard of it before, and my googling isn't revealing anything other than links to this same story. It makes me think this isn't even real.

The mother must have had it on the wrong setting.

Maybe she's just a cutter. Nothing indicates suicide.

It's just a cry for attention by the girl.

She's also got scary ghoul teeth and enlarged, red demon eyes so she might just be evil. On the plus side she's wearing a lovely blouse.

"Evil stick" is a metaphor for the male genitalia. Be glad your googling didn't return anything else.

Re: 'Princess Wand' Reveals Image Of Girl Cutting Wrist

I know we joke around a lot, and personally, I'm usually one to think that a lot of these griping groups and/or individuals should just relax and get over themselves, but they're right on this one. This toy is obviously marketed toward young kids, and that is definitely not an image young kids need to be exposed to. A scary face is one thing, but showing a kid getting ready to harm themselves with a knife is just overboard. Kids do copy things, or at the very least are left with lasting impressions of things that frighten them. Plus, even though you can't make out exactly what they show on the package, you can tell it's definitely not what is actually under the sticker. There's misrepresentation all over this thing.

To make it worse, the package clearly states "ages 3 and up". I guess it's marketed more towards the "...up".

I think the mother's first mistake was buying this toy from the dollar store. We see messed up products like this all the time from dollar stores.

Re: 'Princess Wand' Reveals Image Of Girl Cutting Wrist

the fact that there is no evidence of this product on google other than this news story would tend to indicate it's a hoax. I mean, who would even consider marketing this product?
