Mr Potato Head, an iconic children's character, is no longer a mister!
Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the toy a gender-neutral new name: Potato Head. It also said it would sell a new playset and allow kids to create their own type of potato families, including two moms or two dads.
The announcement has caused a stir on social media with many asking if anyone ever really cared about Mr Potato's gender? Hasbro later clarified that while the brand is changing, the actual Mr and Mrs Potato Head characters will still live on and be sold in stores.
