So Play Doh made a thing called the Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset that allowed you to mold inedible Play-Doh into the shape of luscious cakes. It all seemed like innocent fun.
Once you’ve made your pretend cakes, it’s time to decorate. You can start by squeezing out some Play-Doh Plus frosting with the extruder. Try adding 2 colors for fun swirls! Add Play-Doh candies and other fun shapes with over 20 half-molds on the playset. You can even use them to decorate the playset itself. Top off your Play-Doh birthday cake extravaganza with the 6 included candles, then serve your pretend treats to your friends on the 2 plates!
But it turns out the “Plus” comes with extra lovin’. It is often best to “pretend” around this treat.
Did no one notice that this looked like a penis? Especially as it extruded pale frosting all over your pretend cake? Our guess is that designing Play-Doh accessories is lonely work, the smell of the factory gets you high and people just get carried away.
Of course this is not the only dubious, genitally-questionable toy. There was the Dora The Explorer Aquarium that looked like a micro-penis with Dora the Explorer floating inside:
We had a whole gallery of toys and comics with exploding junk here, but this Batman water pistol remains a favorite:
And of course, toys that pee and poo have a long, honored tradition, like Barbie’s dog that pooped brown stuff and then ate it so it could poop again:
And Barbie also had a kitten that wee’d. And our all time favorite, Potty Training Kelly.
But while researching this post, we found the motherlode, as it were, a whole site called that is just too good to be true:
Huge selection of pooping dog at great prices. Shop pooping dog now!
