Play-Doh Maker Recalls Cake Mountain Set Due To Offended Parents Complaining About Phallic Symbol

| by Matiss Batarags

Hasbro, a popular toymaker and the producer of Play-Doh, was forced to change the design of the Cake Mountain set after many parents complained that the frosting applicator looked too much like a phallus.

The part in question is called the ‘extruder’ and is meant to be used as a syringe to apply the frosting onto the Play-Doh cakes. One parent interviewed by Tulsa’s Channel 8 said, "It's pretty phallic. It's a pretty phallic cake decorating piece, not necessary, I don't think.”

After many outraged posts on Twitter and Facebook complaining about the applicator, Hasbro released a statement saying, “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."

The new Cake Mountain sets have an updated version of the extruder. Hasbro also said that any parents that want a replacement part can call to receive an updated extruder for free.
