What is the world coming to…You mean to tell me that even Play-Doh, a toy many of us sat on the floor and played alongside our now grown children with…has gone freaky.

The pliable dough has been used by children of all ages to build all manner of innocent figures such as a hat for G. I. Joe or Jane, googly-eyed monsters, worms that glow-in-the- dark. Heck, kids have even eaten moderate amounts of it and didn’t end up in the emergency

room.

But as is the case with a lot of things – a good thing is only good until it turns bad.And over the holiday season, some parents made a rather unpleasant discovery: a tool in a Play-Doh kit that strongly resembles a penis.

Bad.

Yes folks, a penis. And pictures of the offending part circulated on Twitter with clever wordplays like “Dil-Doh.”

And the $20 Sweet Shoppe Mountain Playset even has an extruder for squeezing out “icing” onto Play-Doh cakes, similar to a baker’s pipette. But when the plunger is removed, the case takes a different (less family-friendly) form. Angry parents have reportedly been

complaining about the tool since November, but following Christmas—when the playsets were presumably doled out in relatively large numbers—angry comments on Play-Doh’s Facebook page garnered more attention. The comments have now been removed.
