UNDATED (CNN) -- A Halloween costume for toddlers spotted at Walmart has some parents stunned. They say the "naughty leopard" costume for little girls is inappropriate.

As early as children learn the ABCs, they often learn to love Halloween. There's candy and all those characters to choose from.

At 3-years-old, Claire didn't think twice about the name of this costume "naughty leopard". And when she tried it on, she loved it. Mom Katie Dombrowski though, not so much. She says, "It's like the Cabaret-ish sparkles here with the black. I don't know. It's a little excessive. I would not buy it for her."

The costume was bought at a Portland Walmart in the aisle over from these flirty tops for adults. The other child costumes include sweetie cat and playful cat. Some might say naughty means misbehaving, but Katie says, "Yeah, that's not the impression the name gives for a costume. The outfit itself is cute. But naughty leopard doesn't sound like something that a kid should be wearing."

The costume is also available on, but you won't find the word naughty. Instead, the picture is matched with the title "leopard child Halloween costume."

At Target only found costumes like flower child and purple popstar. At Fred Meyer, there was a costume with a pouty toddler pictured called devilish punk.

Oregon news station KATU reports a Walmart spokeswoman says stores are pulling the costumes from shelves.

She said, "it was never our intention to offend anyone and we apologize to any customers who may have been offended by the name of the costume."
