SPANAWAY, Wash. -- A Spanaway mom can't believe what was inside the video game she bought her 9-year old daughter.

Kara Petrich went to the Big Lots store in Tacoma and thought she was buying an "E"-rated game, which is rated suitable for everyone.

Instead, she was shocked to find her daughter Paisley playing a mislabeled dating game packed with adult innuendos and risque remarks.

"Make sure you bring your life jackets, condoms," Kara said of the dialogue in the game.

Instead of opening a Petz monkey game where kids raise and care for monkeys, her daughter got an eyeful of the T (teen)-rated "Sprung" -- animated sexy young singles monkeying around on the slopes.

"You wanna rock my mountains, don't you?" says a character on the game, according to Kara.

"(I was like) 'You wanna what?'"

Petrich hasn't even had the birds and bees conversation yet with her third-grader.

"It does make me angry," Kara said. "When I'm ready to tell her, I'll talk to her about it."

This isn't a wrong game in the wrong box mix-up, the game cartridge itself is actually mislabeled. Everything has the Petz brand on it.

It left little Paisley confused.

"She comes to me complaining that it's not giving me my pets," Kara said.

Petrich is pointing the finger at the game's manufacturer Ubisoft. We're still waiting for a response from the company, but in the meantime, she has a warning for parents.

"Most important, I want parents to know that you can't just hand kids a game and then send them off," she said.

The mom says the Big Lots where she bought it is in no way to blame but the store is letting corporate know about the mix-up.
