Fisher-Price debunks fake ‘Happy Hour Playset’ toy

EAST AURORA, N.Y. (AP) — Fisher-Price has taken to Twitter to debunk any notion it has a bar-themed playset for toddlers.

The image of a Fisher-Price “Happy Hour Playset” was created and shared on Instagram by meme maker Adam Padilla. It shows three toddlers standing at a pretend bar, with one posing as a bartender. Two of the kids are holding what looks like plastic beer bottles.

The picture prompted some Twitter complaints to Fisher-Price. The toymaker’s account responded that the product wasn’t “endorsed, produced or approved by Fisher-Price.”

The image was posted just two days after Fisher-Price was the target of a spoof by “Saturday Night Live,” which aired a fake ad for toys for sensitive boys, including a wishing well.

Fisher-Price says it appreciates “the suggestions as obvious love of the brand.”
