The penis mold above has apparently ruined Christmas for parents all over America.
Because it’s a penis. A veiny penis with flying balls. And a disturbingly realistic tip.
Except the penis mold above isn’t a penis mold. It’s a toy made by Hasbro to accompany Play-Doh’s Sweet Shoppe Mountain Playset to squeeze Play-Doh icing onto make-believe Play-Doh cakes. In short, the set has nothing to do with genitals. Or flying balls. Just plain ol’ innocent fun.
But parents know better. This is a dick. The dick that ruined Christmas.
So, parents took to Facebook to complain about the questionably shaped toy.

But Play-Doh’s social team decided to erase the penis complaints. Because it’s not a penis. It’s a toy.

Damage control, eh?
A Hasbro spokesperson released this statement regarding penis-gate:
“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain playset and are in the process of updating future Play-Doh products with a different tool.”
And those who wish to replace the phallic item with a new toy can call the customer care number at 800-327-8264.
Now, about the person who approved such a suggestive toy?
