Christmas is over and kids across the country are enjoying their gifts — but some parents say  a penis-shaped toy ruined their holiday.

The Hasbro Play-Doh Cake Mountain set is getting a lot of attention because the play set has one part called “the extruder” — and some say it resembles male genitalia.

Many people began posting photos of the toy on the Play-Doh’s Facebook page — but users later noticed some comments were being deleted.

The toy remains for sale on their website, but the company has released a statement with talks of updating the look of the toy.

“We have heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool in the Play-Doh Cake Mountain playset and are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool. Should any consumer want a replacement extruder for this item, they can contact Hasbro’s Customer Service Department at 800-327-8264.”
