Were there some red faces recently?
Thought for the day…” A goal is a dream with a deadline”.
” When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it”
Now I am wondering if there are some very red faces at the American toymaker Hasbro over it’s ‘Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset’. Red faces probably, not over the spelling of ‘shoppe’ but probably over the transparent plastic tube that is used to squeeze out Play-Doh to appear like cake frosting. More than one person has commented that the plastic extruder appears to be very much like a sex-toy. Remember that this item was sold in a set aimed at children, and was sold through reputable retailers.
Comments were posted on Facebook, including on Hasbro Inc. own pages about the ‘toy’. More than a few parents have been upset by the shape of the ‘toy’. And if you have time, then check out some of the comments and reviews that purchasers have left on Amazon.com. Sure to bring a smile…….and good that most people can see the funny side of life. Hasbro are replacing the item with an alternative design.
Something more serene and less controversial here…Lake Hawea in Otago, South Island New Zealand. The photo shows the main highway which heads through the Southern Alps up to the Haast Pass, before dropping down to the West Coast. Lake Hawea is a popular fishing spot, whilst Hawea village has a wonderful cafe and restaurant (Sailz), well worth a short detour off the highway to visit. Highly recommended !!
