Play-Doh frantically trying to hide customer complaints of new ‘sex toy’ attachment; parents irate!

It is perhaps the greatest design flaw in children’s toy history.

Hasbro has been inundated with complaints since the pre-Christmas release of its new toy, “Play-Doh Cake Mountain.”

Many parents began complaining on the company Facebook page in November that the toy resembled another kind of “Do,” but it appears the comments are now being deleted from the page.

Hasbro released a statement Tuesday informing consumers of its plans to change the product and have offered a “replacement tool.”

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

It boggles the mind to imagine how this product made it through the stiff process of checks and balances a big company like Hasbro has and reached store shelves with no one raising concerns.

The Twitterverse remains abuzz with people sticking it to the company.

The product is still available via the company website.
