Controversial Toy Part Changed After Consumer Feedback
Some parents are concerned that a popular toy could surprise parents who purchase it.
The Hasbro Play-Doh Cake Mountain set is getting a lot of attention because some people feel the play set has one part that resembles a male body part a little too much.
Tulsa's Channel 8 wanted to show parents the play set to see what they thought of one part, called an 'extruder'.
"Oh.... well," remarked Anna, who was at a loss for words as she viewed the 'extruder'.
"It's pretty phallic. It's a pretty phallic cake decorating piece, not necessary, I don't think," said Ashley, when she saw it.
"I guess a kid wouldn't know. I mean you... It could be considered.... " Anna laughed and struggled to find the words to respond.
We reached out to Hasbro to find out if the company had received any complaints.
The statement sent to Tulsa's Channel 8 says: "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."
We showed the parents the new replacement part, Tulsa's Channel 8 received in the mail. Both parents approved.
"I think it's better don't you?" questioned Anna.
After doing some digging, we found at least one Tulsa store still selling the box with the original extruder part.
Hasbro says any customers who purchased the toy and would like the replacement part to call them at 800-327-8264.
