Mr. Potato Head, the classic Hasbro toy who presumably lived the first 70-or-so years of his life as a male tuber, will soon be rebranded with the gender-neutral “Potato Head” moniker.

The new name will be reflected on packaging scheduled to debut later this year, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Hasbro reportedly claimed that Mr. Potato Head, who is often sold alongside Mrs. Potato Head, needed a “modern makeover,” according to the AP. Both Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head were still categorized under their original names at Hasbro’s website as of Thursday afternoon.


Fast Company first reported the news on Thursday that Mr. Potato Head is getting a rebranding.  The report begins:

This fall, you’re cordially invited to Mr. Potato Head’s wedding. He’s marrying his partner of many years, another Mr. Potato Head. And I promise it’s going to be the party of the year, with—you guessed it—plenty of spuds on the menu.

The toy giant Hasbro is rebranding its iconic Mr. Potato Head toy by dropping the “Mr.” from the name. On the surface, it may seem like a subtle shift, but it is designed to break away from traditional gender norms, particularly when it comes to creating Potato Head families—how toddlers frequently play with the toy, according to Hasbro’s research. But starting this fall, when the new brand is unveiled, kids will have a blank slate to create same-sex families or single-parent families. It’s a prime example of the way heritage toy brands are evolving to stay relevant in the 21st century.

Fast Company writer Dr. Elizabeth Segran tweeted, “What I love about my job is that sometimes I write about human rights and other times I write about how Mr Potato Head can now be in a same sex relationship.”

Kimberly Boyd, the senior vice president of global brands and general manager at Hasbro, said, “The sweet spot for the toy is two to three years old,” she says. “Kids like dressing up the toy, then playing out scenarios from their life. This often takes the form of creating little potato families, because they’re learning what it means to be in a family.”

Hasbro first launched Mr. Potato Head in 1952, and added Mrs. Potato Head the next year. In 2012, the company celebrated Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head’s 60th wedding anniversary. But now, they’ve decided times have changed, and they want to “stop leaning so heavily into this traditional family structure.”

“Culture has evolved. 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,” Boyd declared.

  1. So when do I stop saying mother and say “person who I came out of” or is it pernounced whom, I just don’t know anymore. This has gotten just way to ridiculous and confusing! Welcome to how these kids are gonna be raised!

  2. Why don’t we just take everyone and everything’s identity away. Wear your mask. Don’t touch. Don’t talk. Live in solitude. Everyone should get the same haircut, wear the same uniform, eat the same food, live in identical housing and drive the same car. Will you be happy then???this is insanity.

  3. I can’t even say what I would like to about this but I am sure if I did I would piss off a ton of people and hurt a bunch of feelers there are more important matters that this country needs to worry about and fix and instead they are worried about a plastic damn toy that might have a ball sac or a milk machine SMH

  4. Unbelievable… Whats next… Sissy boy Kneviel….Pink jumpsuit rainbows n stars decorating it n jumps Ken dolls on his moped.

  5. The influence on our children with this craps no wonder our kids are having identity crisis they are constantly being bombarded with sin and being told its all ok the liberals just can’t stand things that are moral and wholesome they want everybody to believe that their righteousness is the only thing that’s righteous they have no time for the Bible so I really don’t know

  6. I have an Idea.

    Instead of forcing the long standing and existing products to change to conform to someone else’s forced “Ideology” – why not use the creative resources you have to invent new games – toys – food etc that are consistent with the “New Thinking”.

    Here is why they don’t and won’t – probably 80 to 85 % of the population ( maybe more ) do not agree with the Cancel Culture Crap that is being shoved down everyone else’s throats. So any new products that were created would probably “Crash and Burn” and never see the success of the original product. They know most people don’t care about the cancel culture and they wouldn’t be able to push their beliefs on other people.

    STOP IT – STOP IT NOW

  7. Isn’t that discrimination? What about removing Mrs from Mrs Potato Head? That way kids can do what they want without anyone or any company telling them which is right or wrong? Stupid!

  8. That Boyd person needs to repent and realize God made he man and woman just 2 like all the animals that entered the ark a male and female unless this person gets saved by Christ blood they will be thrown in the lake of fire with Satan for all eternity

  9. These companies are making it easier and easier to save my money! Stupid just plain stupidity! It will never end! So I’m going back to making our own games and toys for my grand babies. All these Chinese painted pieces of crap can stay in China. I will not be buying anything this year except the absolute necessities!

  10. It’s only going to stop if we the people stop it, the libtard politicians are not going to. This is beyond any normal thinking person. This will continue unless we stop it period

  11. Totally sick. But the only way any of this bs stops is if we voice our disapproval or evertone stops buying the crap. Step up America, or it won’t stop

  12. I would rather see it totally go away along with hasbro. Culture has evolved? What the f is that suppose to mean……sick deranged people and the obsession with skin color and gender. Totally destroying America and we are letting them

  13. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the Aunt Jemima thing , like why was it an issue to have a pleasant looking black woman( is it ok to say woman) on some killer syrup for my pancakes!!!!!!! Now this!!!!!! It’s a fricken toy for a 3 year old whom deserves to just be a kid!!!!!!!! This is weird.

  14. It doesn’t matter.
    People will continue to buy Chinese plastic garbage for their children and grandchildren and great grandchildren because nowadays just giving one or two small gifts is not enough. And children will continue getting their stupid little gifts for every known holiday or reason because the children want it. I have seen people buying all this garbage and Spending their hard earned $. I by choice never had children but had worked in toy departments and saw how children tell parents what to buy. It won’t be any different until people wise up.
    Like the sheepies they are wearing masks and getting the vaccine they will continue to buy Chinese junk.
    Nothing will change.

  15. So traditional culture norms are abhorrent but woke culture replacement ideology is inherently moral and unifying?
    Says who? 1%? 2% of the population?

  16. Does it come with its own bottle of Prozac? By the time our kids are teenagers they will be on psychiatric medication so they can handle life.

  17. So now G. I. Joe will have a Malibu dream house and live with Ken (or Skip). He will drive a pink tank and wear white Go-Go boots, right?
    I grew up with Mr Potato Head. It had absolutely no affect on my chosen orientation.
    Let kids be kids and let parents choose their toys.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

  18. UNBELIEVABLE!! I AM OVER THIS SICK, SHOVE THIS NO GENDER CRAP DOWN EVERYONE’S THROAT AND DEMAND EVERYONE CONFORM!! BULLSH#T!! GO ANYWHERE ELSE AND TRY THIS CRAP – THEY’LL LOSE BODY PARTS!! GOD CREATED MAN & WOMAN!!

  19. The name Hazbro is an abbreviation of the original name Hassenfeld Brothers. I guess the next step for the company is to rebrand the company as Hazsibs? Which should make the company Has Beens.

  20. We are living in a very sick world. They want everyone to conform to their perversion. I remember long ago when a man and a woman was the normal standard relationship. Every society ends the same way. They turn to sand. When morals go, so goes the empire. Look what happen to Rome.

  21. This is absolutely a bunch of crap… total nonsense… malarkey… poppycock.

    I can promise right now I wouldn’t consider buying one, nor will one be allowed in my home: potato non grata!

  22. Couldn’t they just by two of the same sex potatoes if they want that?? It’s not that hard. This whole frigging gender crap is beyond stupid. Company’s are getting stupider by the day. Just like Sodom & Gomorrah.
