They might be able to claim it is a coincidence until you look at the base of the building.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A bag of candy shocked a local grandmother and will most likely shock you. The toy inside looks like a plane flying right into the Twin Towers. Now, that toy is off some local store shelves because of our story.


MORE IMAGES OF TOY

It doesn't stop there, though. That grandmother was surprised, again, when she read the numbers imprinted on the toy.

Until Thursday afternoon, the little toys were on sale to kids around Central Florida -- two towers with a jetliner in between that appears to be crashing into one of the buildings. They come in packages along with candy.

We talked to a grandmother who couldn't believe what she'd inadvertently bought for her grandson.



Not weird enough?

"It makes me angry," Anna Rodriguez says. "I was offended because I couldn't believe that someone would give something like that to a kid."

When Rodriguez let her grandson pick out a bag of toys and candy, she never realized what was inside until her own son noticed the disturbing toy.

"[He said] look at the toy. I said, 'Let me see it,' and when I looked at it I was outraged. I was like, what? No way," Rodriguez says.

She purchased the toy at a local grocery store. We found more packages still hanging on the candy rack. The storeowners were appalled when they saw what a distributor for Lisy Corporation, based in Miami, brought to their store. The store pulled the bags from the shelf Thursday.

Rodriguez has pictures of the Twin Towers in her living room to remember the victims of 9/11. She says there is no mistake what the toy represents, especially when you look at the product number on every single toy: 9011.

"Everybody knows it's about the twin towers and it's nothing to be joking around about," says Rodriguez. She believes someone out there did it on purpose. "Whoever did this knew what they were doing, they definitely knew."

A company called Lisy Corporation distributes the candy bags. They said they are also offended by the toy and have pulled 17,000 of the toys.

Lisy says they bought the toys, sight unseen, from L and M Import/Export of Miami. We talked to L and M and they say they have no problem at all with the toy and don't consider it offensive at all.

We even pointed out to the import company that every single toy has a stock number on the front that reads "9011." L and M Imports didn't find it all coincidental and said it's just a toy. Asked if they'd talk on camera, they said there is nothing to talk about.

Fortunately, the product is being pulled from the shelves here in Florida.

Hence the words "really unforunate, sick coincidence" - I agree with you that the odds are incredibly small, but I find it just as unlikely that someone woudl deliberately make a toy like that and ship it to the U.S.

Like I said - it's just my GUESS - maybe there really is some asshole out there who made this deliberately. I could absolutely be wrong.

Not to be the only one but I don't see a plane crashing into a building, instead I see a little toy that spins, yeah it may have something to do with 9/11 but is it making fun of 9/11? Hell if I know I didn't make the toy and I doubt the importer really went out of his way to piss people off.

They no doubt really didn't pay attention to a little toy that came from China, it was in a bag of candy after all.

Now don't get me wrong, they did the right thing pulling the toys.

Well sir, I honestly feel that this was intentional. I can't, for the life of me, conjure up an idea that would result in a toy "flying" between two buildings. I firmly believe it was a cruel prank on us.




I FULLY agree. 2 towers, a plane, nose first, heading toward one of them? Not above it, but at it. A serial number on ALL of them that has 9011? That's just too much to be an accident. For the sake of 3000 murdered people, is it asking the supplier too much to respect that?

FUCK NO. I think they should be called on it, and I'll be making a call tomorrow morning.

If it was done on purpose I still doubt the importer was aware of it at the time. But yeah call them let them know their mistake.

You know, I have to admit that even though my reaction was that it HAS to be a crazy coincidence - the more I look at those two buildings, the more they look eerily like the WTC (I'm especially noticing the really tall windows on the lower floors - that's werid).

So I guess I'm starting to lean towards believing that in fact it might be a deliberate likeness. I GUESS people make toys like this for assholes in the middle east (probably a big seller on the West bank), and maybe they got shipped to the wrong place/importer by mistake??

If deliberate - I agree with ya'll. That would make my blood boil!
Link Posted: 8/27/2004 6:12:11 AM EST
You have got to be a few cards short of a full deck to believe that this toy was NOT made to look like the World Trade Center with a plane crashing into it with the numbers 9011 on it, or your REALLY gullible.


F@CKING PLEASE!!!!!!
Link Posted: 8/27/2004 6:15:00 AM EST
The toy was probably made in China too. If it was made in this country, you would think a worker somehwere would have figured it out before hitting the shelves.

There was a recent story on the news here that L&M was willfully importing childrens jewlery made almost entirely out of lead. It was for the little .25 cent vending machines at the front of grocery stores.

They just dont care.

Link Posted: 8/27/2004 10:41:25 AM EST
Even if 9/11 never happened that toy makes no sense. An airplane between two buildings? What would be the purpose of it. I am sure it is a terrorist toy. It probably wasn't meant for this market and made it here on accident (?). It was more likely meant for the young terrorist boys and girls of the middle east.

Link Posted: 8/27/2004 10:47:38 AM EST
Importer claims all he did was contract for cheap toys to fulfill a business deal with no selection what they'd send over.
Was for a "grab bag" type party favor, and of course says he had no idea what was coming in.

Maybe they are popular in the Orient and Mid-East which would be unthinkable.

Toys of choice for baby terrorists?

But like I said I doubt the importer new what the hell type of little toy it was, no one ever likely gave them a second look. Just sold them and then all the sudden the shit hit the fan.

You would think that the importer would open the box to see what he was distributing. I blame the distributer.
