You may not know this about me, but I love giving people gifts. Especially, when I find a gift I think is perfect. Like this Play-Doh Cake Mountain that I was so excited to give to my friend’s 2-year-old daughter. I thought it was perfect because my friend makes some of the most beautiful and delicious cakes EVAH. As a matter of fact she made the cakes for my wedding. So you can understand why I thought this Play-Doh set would be perfect for some mother and daughter play.
Imagine my surprise when I got the following “thank you” text:
Do you see what I see? Yes indeedy it looks like one of the accessories to Cake Mountain is shaped a whole lot like a penis. As in, it couldn’t possibly be shaped any more like a penis without having to be sold in an adult toy store kind of place. What cracks me up even more is that is appears that you are supposed to fill it with Play-Doh which will then squirt come out of the tip, for decorating purposes I’m sure, but COME ON (pun totally intended)!
I’m sure the 2-year-old will fail to see the similarity in shape to a penis that this toy accessory has, I just hope it doesn’t somehow have some lasting consequences in the future, like some kind of subconscious association with cake, penises and Play-Doh.
