Apparently, Hasbro's quality control specialists thought this toy was a-ok for teh chidrens.
Hasbro, the Pawtucket-based toy company, is now doing damage control over the extruder tool in its Play-Doh Cake Mountain toy. The two-piece syringe-like tool, which includes a tube with corkscrew-type ridges around the outside and a dome-shaped top with a hole at the tip, can be used to squeeze Play-Doh to look like decorative cake frosting.
From my experience, that looks more like an intruder tool than an extruder. Here's a question: what does it look like when someone cleans this tool? Will flushing it with water do the trick, or do you have to really rub the outside with your hands?
