Protest to Burger King: "Slam the Bird Toy" Teaches Cruel Lessons to Children

Burger King has launched a new toy targeting children through its "Kids Meals" --a small plush toy bird called "Silly Slammer #5 Chirpy." Children are instructed to "slam" the bird for a desired chirping response. This toy encourages children to be cruel and to try forcing a similar response from live birds and other small animals by "slamming" or crushing them.

WHAT CAN I DO?
Tell Burger King to recall this irresponsible toy immediately. Request a written reply.
