Phallic Phun for Everyone

Good friend and Gallery stalwart, Al Wirtes, found this toy box cover in a Big Lots:

And here is Ring around the Nosy in action:

Brian Donahue, another good friend of the Gallery, points out that in The Interpretation of Dreams, Freud says, "We have a case of such displacement when the genitals are replaced by the face in the symbolism of thought.... The nose is compared to the penis in numerous allusions..."

Thanks, Al and Brian, for putting our toy-filled holiday season into context.
