'Evil magic wand toy' sold at Dollar Store disturbs mom

‘Princess wand’ reveals image of girl cutting wrist

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.
