Mr. Potato Head is no longer a mister. The Hasbro Company, makers of Mr. Potato Head is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year. Do you think the world is taking the "Gender Neutral" thing too far or no? There was at one point a Mrs. Potato Head. On the other side of the coin, if it IS just Potato Head, the likely hood of all kids might want to own and play with one.
Toy makers have been updating their classic brands to appeal to kids today. Barbie has shed its blonde image and now comes in multiple skin tones and body shapes. Thomas the Tank Engine added more girl characters. And American Girl is now selling a boy doll.
