Play-Doh in Damage Control Mode Over Toy That Very Much Resembles a Penis

Poor social media managers. One minute you're thinking up cute ways to create brand-appropriate happy holiday messages and the next minute you're furiously deleting images of little plastic penises.

Play-Doh is in damage control mode on its social media accounts after some parents decided to complain about a particularly phallic toy that apparently traumatized their children and practically ruined Christmas – or something like that.

An "extruder" part for the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset appears to be a bit more dil-doh than play-doh, and the internet has taken notice.

Play-doh has been deleting posts to its Facebook page – posts complaining about and containing images of the dick-shaped toy.

Funny thing is, this isn't a new issue. Hasbro actually began the process of altering the part due to complaints the company received nearly two months ago.

"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," said the company in a statement.

Apparently, the process should've been a bit speedier.

The playset is currently available to purchase for $19.99. As of now, the "extruder" is still pretty wiener-esque.
