Play-Doh’s Facebook Appears To Be Deleting Comments From Parents About Its New Penis-Shaped Toy

Some parents have said that Play-Doh’s new phallic-shaped play set ruined their Christmas. The company now says it plans to update the design.

1. This is the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Play Set.

2. The play set comes with an applicator…

3. …which many people have realized looks an awful lot like a penis.

4. Concerned parents have been posting photos of the cake mountain play set’s alleged penis on the Play-Doh Facebook page.

5. But users began noticing that the moderators of the Facebook page were deleting the comments and photos.

6. The toy, and Play-Doh’s response, was so controversial it made the local news. Tulsa, Oklahoma’s, KTUL interviewed parents who felt it was too phallic.

8. BuzzFeed has reached out to Play-Doh for comment, which appears to still be deleting Facebook comments about its play set.

 

9. Play-Doh’s parent company, Hasbro, said in a statement Tuesday that it would change the toy’s design.

“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 said on Facebook. “Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264.”
