Hasbro To Put Out Gender Neutral "Potato Head" Toy Along With Mr. and Mrs.


Yesterday the toy company Hasbro caused quite a stir on social media when they announced that they were putting out a gender neutral "Potato Head" toy. They originally announced that they would be dropping the Mr. and Mrs. from the brand's name to be more inclusive and so that kids could create their own families if they had two moms or two dads. And while they are putting out that gender neutral playset, they are not saying goodbye to Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. In fact, Hasbro tweeted out, "While it was announced today that the POTATO HEAD brand name & logo are dropping the 'MR.' I yam proud to confirm that MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD aren't going anywhere and will remain MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD," So while initially Twitter went crazy after hearing the news, with some mocking it and others welcoming it, things calmed down once Hasbro clarified exactly what they meant. I'm all for all kinds of potato heads in the world! So bring it on!!
