Before you start getting upset over what appears to be a "Fisher-Price Happy Hour Playset," take a moment to look it up on snopes.com

The website that investigates rumor posts and stories says the playset is not real. 

Social media users became outraged after someone posted an image of what appears to be packaging for the "Happy Hour Playset" on Facebook on December 6. 

The packaging says the playset includes a pretend bar, bar stools and beer bottles and shows toddlers standing at the plastic bar with plastic bottles in their hands and a very young bartender behind the bar. 

Some people thought the set was hilarious, while others took their frustrations to the Fisher-Price Facebook page for marketing such an item to toddlers or their parents. 

The image was obviously photo-shopped by a very talented graphic designer. 

Representatives with Fisher-Price responded to some of the comments with the following statement: 

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

Moral of the story, don't believe everything you see on the internet, and when in doubt, check with the pros.
