A MUM has told of her “total shock” after snatching a kids’ toy off her daughter – thinking it was something VERY X-rated.
Catherine Douglas was convinced her three-year-old girl had accidentally picked up a sex aide during a shopping trip to a Kmart supermarket in Rockhampton, Australia.

But the item was in fact part of a new range of strange-looking children’s toys designed to look like bananas.
Orb Odditeez a soft toys with banana-like peels that when removed reveal a “squishy surprise” – like a unicorn horn or a corn on the cob.
In Catherine’s case, the surprise was a large index finger – which can be confused for something raunchier at a distance.
She said: “We were having a look around the doll section, when my three-year-old came around the corner with this thing in her hand.
“My first impression was total shock, I said: ‘What’s that? Give it to me now!’”
I took a photo to show my partner, because once I knew it was a toy I could see the funny side of it
After realising that the AUS$5 (£2.70) toy was more innocent than it first seemed, Catherine thought she’d take a snap to show her other half.
She said: “I took a photo to show my partner, because once I knew it was a toy I could see the funny side of it.
A few days later, Ms Douglas posted the photo of the toy to a Kmart Facebook group – where it caused quite a stir.
She said: “I just thought I’d pass it on to share some light humour and did it on my lunch break.
“But it went absolutely crazy, with people commenting and liking it all over the place.”

Even Facebook censors seem to have fooled by the toy’s suspicious appearance – as it disappeared from the site soon after.
Ms Douglas added: “Perhaps the administrators of the group weren’t happy with it being on there.
“I didn’t intend to offend anyone, but if it did, then maybe Kmart may need to think about taking it off their shelves.”
