Dropping the Mr From Mr Potato Head

The eradication of gender is nearly complete. The 70-year-old Mr Potato Head line of toys will now have the more gender-neutral name “Potato Head.”

We have not achieved utopia quite yet, because after the announcement Hasbro clarified that Mr Potato Head himself will still keep the “Mr”:

The brand name change, which will appear on boxes this year, makes the spud the latest toy to undergo changes to conform to diversity and inclusion efforts. Others include the Thomas the Tank Engine line, which now features more female characters, and American Girl, which has begun selling a boy doll.

Let’s hope Mr and Mrs Potato Head remain legal in California, where a new bill would mandate gender-neutral children’s retail departments.
