Campaign Goals: Sell Kids Putty, End Culture Wars

Toys with a message are always fun. Barbie wants you to be a high-class prostitute, Mr. Potato Head wants you to think plastic surgery is the knees. But here’s a product that wants you to let your kids end the world’s religious/racial problems by sitting around and forming this play-doh like substance into KKK enthusiasts. Ah, childhood. “Let the kids build a better world,” the tagline reads.

What do you think? We think it’s interesting that this product does very little to actually advertise to children. There’s something, eh? The product is called Becks modeling clay, and it’s the Euro Play-Doh.
