How did no one notice this before pushing out this product?
Hasbro is famous for pumping out their famous Play-Doh products for kids! The colorful clay can be molded into any shape!

But the shape of their latest Play-Doh Cake Mountain accessory was a little too suggestive for many — and it had parents up in arms this past Christmas!
Not seeing the problem with the cake icing applicator tool? Try looking at it from this angle:

Yeah. It looks a lot like a penis!
Or maybe something you’d buy at a very different toy store! LOLz!

Many parents seemed stinkin’ mad about the phallic qualities of the applicator and even started blowing up the toy company’s social media pages. And they became even more outraged when they realized their comments were being deleted!
But after enough parents complained about the resemblance, the company decided to address the problem head-on!
Here’s what Hasbro said in a statement:

“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain play set and are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool. Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264.”

OMG, it’s called the Extruder? It even sounds filthy!
We wonder if ALL parents will be replacing this controversial item, or if some parents think this whole thing is way overblown!
