Is Target Selling Star Wars Themed Adult Toys?

I know there's some Star Wars fans that were pretty orgasmic about the newest installation of the science fiction series.  Thanks to Target, you can now take the excitement home with you.

Maybe not all of our minds went there, but one mom looked at these toys and decided to ask the super store:

Are we sure these are children’s toys, Target? Looks a little questionable to me.”

 

A not-so innocent looking children’s toy has left many shoppers scratching their heads.

A set of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” branded pool toys, which look an awful lot like a beginner’s set of dildos, has at least one parent asking Target: “Are we sure these are children’s toys, Target? Looks a little questionable to me.”

Well, it's not a million moms yet, but it only takes one to bring up something like this.

An official representative for Target actually responded to Joni’s post:

“Hi Joni – We apologize for your disappointment. Occasionally, we carry merchandise that some guests may find objectionable, as was your experience. We never want to offend anyone and have shared this with our Merchandise team for review. Thanks. – Stacey”

Oh Disney, you do bring us joy in so many ways and now it's in a handy pack of three.

Now we know the biggest secret in the universe, Stormtroopers are circumcised and Sith Lords are not.

Will these products stay on the shelves? 

Do they really look like dildos?

What other comical sayings can you think of?

*** UPDATE ***

Apparently our blog got the attention of the mom in question.  Joni Jones responded to our Facebook post.  Looks like she is not a proud member of the One Million Moms, but instead a cool mom that was just making a funny.  But like most of our moms, she seems to have not mastered twitter or texting.

Thanks again for the laugh Joni and thanks for reading Instinct.

But why should children grab such oddly shaped objects in a pool ;) I can see it as fun, hilarious, and a unoffensive innuendo, but a bit inappropriate for a child who shouldn't have to wonder about such things. Lol

It's would have been worth mentioning that they are pool dive sticks.  While I can see the humor, they would have been amongst the pool accessories and when you look closer at the packaging, it makes perfect sense and not offensive at all.
