Toymaker Hasbro has reportedly made changes to a Play-Doh toy set after parents pointed out that a particular component resembles a portion of the male anatomy.

“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,” said the company in a statement to KTUL.

Some parents say the toy was too phallic.

According to KTUL, the company has offered customers who already purchased the toy the option to have a replacement part sent to them.
