Bosses have apologised after customers found obscene messages when they 
unwrapped toys bought in a local shop.

One horrified mum found a note in a potty she’d bought for her two-year-old.

And staff revealed she was not the only person to have found a message, believed to have been left by a disgruntled ex-employee.

The mum, who doesn’t want to be named, said she was shocked by the message, which is too disgusting for The Falkirk Herald to print and was written on a Smyths sticker

It was found in a Minnie Mouse potty bought for her daughter from the Central Retail Park branch of Smyths Toys.

She said: “I was absolutely horrified - the message was horrible. I couldn’t even repeat what it said. It was bad enough me finding it, but what if a child old enough to read found it?

“I called the shop right away and they admitted there have been lots found in various items but said mine was the first found in baby stock.

“They blamed it on a former employee who did it on his last day at work and said there was nothing they could do.”

She added: “The shop is huge with a massive inventory of stock so you can’t expect them to check every box but allowing these notes to be found in toys and baby items is shocking.”

A spokesman for Smyths said: “Symths Toys Superstores apologises unreservedly. We are currently carrying out an internal investigation into the incident.”
