This is not real!

FOX 17 – There are plenty of things to be upset about, but don’t waste your wrath on Fisher Price for a Happy Hour Playset that is making the rounds on Facebook.

It is not true.

Someone started circulating the photo of a playset of a bar with three real toddlers, and play barstools, beer bottles and other bar materials as a “funny” post. Many have shared it as a joke.  Some have shared it as being outraged, and have even contacted Fisher Price regarding their displeasure with the company.

The company has replied:

Please know that this product is not endorsed, produced or approved by Fisher-Price.

Snopes.com reports they have not been able to identify the originator of the post or the photo.

So, if you are concerned about fake news on the web, don’t share this one around.  But, you can share this story about it being fake.

    People who are outraged have too much time on their hands. FP likes making money. Common sense will tell you they would never do this………

      @Mac Woods, I agree that “outraged” is a rather strong description, However, I feel that those who make up fake news have too much time on their hands as well..Plus, Scammers are getting craftier.. So, I think its great that Fox 17 is putting up “Fake News reports” articles it does help decipher what is real and what is not.
      More News outlets should be doing the same thing…

    Does this mean that the Fisher Price Funtime Autopsy and Cadaver set is also a fake?
    i hope not….it all looked so real on Facebook..
