    I get that parents may not have as much of a sense of humor about it (it makes me giggle like a 12-year-old) but it's true that the repression we have about this is over the top. It's not healthy. Sex and private parts are natural, there's an appropriate time/place, etc. it shouldn't be this big a deal.

    Remove the offending toy from your kid's play-doh set if you feel the need, and laugh about it.

    ^Seriously! My parents would've laughed at this and let me play with it anyway. Adults are the ones that assign such horrible connotations to genitals, kids don't care and don't know. If you don't want your kid playing with a little plastic play doh dick, then take it away. But it's nothing to get in an uproar about.

    Gawker had posted some great comments from customers about this. One of them was something like "dough gets caught in the device, and you have to blow on it to remove the clay."

    If you go to Amazon, here are some comments:

    I bought this for the collector value of the "extractor"

    Warning: Excessive playing with the extruder may cause blindness.

    The extruder works great with all colors but for some reason the white play doh shoots out of it in spurts, not a steady stream

    For some reason, the extruder keeps turning up missing. But luckily my wife always ends up finding it. The Play-Doh always comes out of the ribbed extruder with a nice creamy texture. Caution: don't push I and out on the extruder to fast or hard, or it will release it's contents way too soon.

    Had a piece in there that I had to take out because of its resemblance to a male body party. [I think this was actually a sincere typo.]

    It's the whole making of something "wrong/inappropriate/forbidden" that makes people obsessed with a thing. Often in an unhealthy manner that wouldn't have been the case otherwise. That's where you get weirdo kid-touchers or guys who want to chop women up and store them in the freezer.

    Let the kids play with their penis toys and have a laugh about it. What's the big damn deal about something looking like a penis? As someone who has been surrounded by men/boys all my life here's a fact: Every single stick-like object that finds its way into their hands becomes one of two things when they are horsing around: A weapon. Or a dick.

    It seems to take a side on the circumcised/uncircumcised debate. That is just wrong!

    I would have laughed. I wouldn't have taken it from my five year old because she would have been clueless.

    However, there is no mistaking what that looks like / represents. Either Hasbro thought it would be funny to put dicks in a kid's toy or they hoped for the publicity.

    This! Granted I don't have kids myself but I've been around kids enough to know that a Cheeto in the hands of a five year old boy can become a hysterically funny fake dick in their eyes, just the same as asking a 40-something male to throw out the cardboard tube from a used up kitchen roll will inevitably result in it being clasped to their groin and waggled at you.

    Also I had a Playdoh Mop Top Hair Shop as a kid and my brother and I howled with laughter more than once when we stuffed the inside of the plastic tube people with Play Doh, then sat them in the barbers chair and cranked the handle so that a plastic bung pushed up through the seat, into their arse and squeezed the Play Doh out through hair holes in their heads while we made the appropriate Hnnnnnng! noises.

    We had that as kids too! Our version was called the "Fuzzy Pumper Barbershop".

    And yes, my brother also waggled these about.

    In the 1970s, our parents would've gotten stoned and then had a good laugh about it.

    Meanwhile, I think a few generous antique dealers ought to give some of those outraged parents one of these:
