Play-Doh!

Hasbro Put the D'oh! in Play-Doh on Christmas With This Penis-Shaped Toy | Adweek

Hey, get your mind out of the gutter, it's just a cake decorating accessory . . . that shoots out . . uh, ejects . . . um . . . streams . . . no . . .



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.

On the other hand they have gotten a boost in sales from those liking strap on devices.

I wonder if during the product development testing with real kids, they heard some kids say "Oh, it's just like mommy's!" and only thought about cake decorating tools.

I wonder how many Hasbronians reviewed and checked off on that design before it hit the stores?

My Play-Doh extruder looked like this when I was a kid:



Why mess with success?

This comes nowhere near the top hasbro unintentionally sexually suggestive toy.

That bar is set awful high with the "oozinator". Just think, entire engineering and industrial design teams worked long and hard to perfectly duplicate male climax in toy form.

For the full effect of this toy, you need to watch the commercials on youtube.
