Even Mr. Potato Head finds gender conformity un-apeeling!

The classic spud-shaped plastic toy is getting a new, gender-neutral name — just plain Potato Head —  with the toymaker Hasbro scrapping the “Mr.” portion.

The company said Mr. Potato Head, which first hit the shelves nearly 70 years ago, needed a fresh, modern makeover. The toy’s new moniker will begin appearing on boxes next year.

“Culture has evolved,” Kimberly Boyd, Hasbro’s senior vice president of global brands, told Fast Company. “Kids want to be able to represent their own experiences. The way the brand currently exists — with the ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs.’ — is limiting when it comes to both gender identity and family structure.”

  1. Black spud.

    Bent up. My potato-head might be summoned. Mulling the Hasbro downfall. Turkey cunning liberals. They forgot Mr. Beet. He should add in. Borscht does not kill. Now now. Young child it is cheaper tomorrow too.

  2. The words Potato Head have often been used to describe a stupid person. And thus, perhaps the toymaker company should change its own company name to “Potato Head”.

  3. When President Trump will return in the next few week be’ez”H for his 2nd term, he’ll put education back to normal removing these nutty professors who are indoctrinating crazy stuff to students and genders will go back to 2 genders only.

      If you think any reaction that is borne out of this, is simply in response to a toy changing name, and no more, then you are an absolute moron.

  4. Long overdue correction that bestows a sense of fairness and inclusiveness while maintaining strict daas Torah and keeping our sacred values intact.
