Play-Doh will exchange phallic-shaped toy after complaints (VIDEO)Entertainment News, Online Only, Section 4A, Top Highlights Wednesday, December 31st, 2014
Hasbro is offering to replace the extruder tool in its Play-Doh Cake Mountain playset after several complaints that the toy resembles a penis, reports CNN.
“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain playset and are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool,” the company posted on its Play-Doh Facebook page. “Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264.”
The playset allows users to build and decorate a Play-Doh “cake.” But some parents were upset over the phallic shape of the extruder tool used to administer the Play-Doh “icing,” with complaints that it made for an uncomfortable Christmas morning for some.
“What was the concept of this,” one parent posted on the Facebook page. “Why couldn’t this be in another form or shape?”
Another tweeted “.@PlayDoh nice job including a dildo shaped implement in cake mountain. Happy holidays!”
