What is Pottery Barn teaching our kids

Got a Pottery Barn Kids catalog in the mail a few days ago. Idly flipping through it, I saw this toy called a Language Wheel. It's got a few words in various languages. Cute toy, nice idea, except they spelled the Italian word 'ciao' as 'chow'. Nice. I'm no Italian linguist, but I don't think you can just make up spellings for words. Oops. Italian-Americans should rise in protest.
