The penis-shaped Play-Doh baking toy is making the Internet rounds, but now there appears to be another problem for the famed company. It appears as if they are actually deleting comments on their Facebook page from angry parents who want to voice their displeasure with the so-called toy.
Business Week reported that the Cake Mountain play set from Play-Doh was purchased by numerous parents so their kids could have it for Christmas. After opening it and seeing all the parts, it appears as if an icing squeezer closely resembles a part of the male anatomy.
It has taken the Internet by storm, and the penis-shaped Play-Doh toy has the company trying to seriously make things right.
Well, maybe they’re trying to make things right. BuzzFeed pointed out that many angry parents and patrons have taken to social media, mostly the Play-Doh Facebook page, to voice their complaints and let the company know of the problem. While that is a great way to let their voices be heard, it appears as if Play-Doh may actually be deleting posts about the penis-shaped toy.
When original complaints about the toy first came out, Play-Doh did make a statement regarding it. A spokesperson for the company said the following.
“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. Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department.”
That’s a great step as parents are incredibly upset that their children opened a gift up on Christmas Day and started playing with a Play-Doh penis baking toy. Still, Play-Doh may have to fix a lot more if they truly are deleting comments from their Facebook page.
The Facebook post regarding the replacement for the Play-Doh penis toy has over 600 likes, 230 shares, and over 500 comments. Now, it has turned into people laughing about the topic while others are angry and offended.
By looking at the number of comments throughout time, it does seem to fluctuate randomly going up and down. Play-Doh may have come up with a plan to replace the penis-shaped extruder toy, but how are they going to fix things if they really are acting as if angry comments never happened?
