FREAKY PLAY-DOH DESIGNERS
The Girl got the Play-Doh Island Squishketball set for her Birthday. She plays with it a couple times a week and it's starting to freak me out. It has a palm tree that holds the basketball hoop and backboard, as well as some tiki face molds on the base. You can also squish Play-doh out of the top of the palm tree. But the problem I have is that the palm tree comes apart and looks remarkably like a phallus. Um...why did they do this? I've never seen a palm tree with a caucasian flesh-colored trunk.
I'm thinkin' the Hasbro folks have some freaks in their design department.
