Secret pedophile symbols end up on children’s toys

A Tampa Bay area company is investigating how a pedophile logo made it onto one of its toys. Feld Entertainment Inc., of Ellenton, has pulled its Monster Truck pillow from circulation and is offering customers refunds after discovering a logo that enables pedophiles to communicate about their wants and desires.

Feld produces Monster Jam shows. It sells souveneirs including the Monster Truck pillow. According to Feld, the pillow was designed in a now-closed office in Fort Worth, Texas. The pillows were manufactured in China.

Nicole Kelly picked one up at a show in Syracuse, New York. Then she discovered a double heart, a symbol for pedophiles.

“Immediately I went into this momma bear mode. I was angry. I wanted to call and text everybody. I wanted answers,” Kelly said.

According to the FBI’s website, people who sexually abuse children, as well as those who produce, distribute and trade child porn, use various types of logos or symbols to recognize one another and distinguish their sexual preferences. The double heart, or girl lover logo, symbolizes a relationship between an adult male or female and a minor girl.

Three mothers, sitting in a Tampa park, had no clue about any of that. “Probably would be good information to have,” Jessica Egli said.

“We have a lot of toys in our house,” Kate McCauley said. “Lots and lots of toys, and I’ve never seen that or thought to look for it. As parents of little kids, I want law enforcement to know more about this.”

“I’ve never heard of it before,” Allyson Brimer added.

Feld vice president of communications Stephen Payne stated the pillow with the double heart was pulled from service. The company is offering refunds or exchanges. Feld’s customer service number is (800) 844-3545.  The email address is customerservice@feldinc.com.

According to Payne, in 30 plus years, Feld never had an issue with toys or a recall. The company is looking into all products associated with the designer of the truck pillow. It doesn’t know if this was an accident or oversight, or if it was intentional.
