A Montreal father was told he wasn't allowed to purchase a 'Daniel Tiger' plush toy because it only 'spoke' English.
According to Huffington Post, Nick Messina tried buying the toy as a local store, but they were sold out. He then called another Toys R Us which informed him two of the toys were in stock.
A clerk then told Messina that he couldn't buy a Daniel Tiger because the toy is unilingual.
The clerk allegedly thanked Messina for letting him know that the toy only spoke English and it would be shipped to Ontario.
In Quebec, language laws make it illegal to sell a unilingual toy unless it has a French version as well.
Toys R Us told the state broadcaster in a statement that the toy should never have been on store shelves.
“Toys 'R' Us shipped in error the English-speaking product to one of our Quebec stores and a customer tried to purchase it. Our store did not sell the product to the customer and we apologized for the inconvenience that this caused our customer. We immediately communicated to our store that this product cannot be sold,” it said.
Messina was able to buy the toy of Amazon for $50 more than what Toys R Us was selling it for.
