Outraged parents didn’t gain much traction back in November when they began complaining that the extruder for Play-Doh’s Cake Mountain toy looked too much like a penis. Hasbro, the company behind Play-Doh, took no steps to respond, other than to offer complaining parents replacement parts.

However, Play-Doh’s efforts to do damage control after Christmas may result in unintended publicity for the dildo-shaped toy. Play Doh is deleting Facebook posts on its site displaying the extruder, which of course only highlights the “problem.”

And it really, really does look like a penis.

On the other hand, some on Twitter are suggesting this is much ado about nothing.
