Toymaker Hasbro has reportedly made changes to a Play-Doh toy set after parents complained about a component that resembles a portion of the male anatomy.

“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 company said in a statement to KTUL.

Customer complaints on the Play-Doh Facebook page date back to November, however the number of complaints has increased since Christmas. Some parents say the toy is too phallic.

The company has offered customers who already purchased the toy the option to have a replacement part sent to them.

Play-Doh posted an update on its Facebook page on Tuesday:

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.

    Wow….. They really messed up. Somebody in the design department must have used his own you know what as a model . With all of the overpaid executives in this company Simebody should have looked at this and said something. Maybe all of these executives need to have a class in what a you know what looks like

      Ron I hope you are being sarcastic, if not then you are one of the many problems this country has, to many people who get butt hurt over stupid things. do you get Butt Hurt over the shapes Submarines, Space Rockets, space pops, Popsicles, for you know it takes a dirty mind to think it looks like something else. I would hate to see how you are with other things that go on in the world, do you butt your nose in other people business about how they raise their kids, or maybe look in their windows, maybe you also give advice on subjects you know nothing about.
