TRANS-TOY?: Mr. Potato Head’s gender swap leaves people FURIOUS

by Graham Allen Team

Mr. Potato Head, the famous children’s toy, will undergo a gender reassignment later this year.

Hasbro announced that after around 70 years of the famous potato will now be gender-neutral.

The rebranding of the classic icon will take place on packaging later this year.

Some speculate around Christmas time; the character will be completely different.

This is a peculiar step in an interesting direction for children’s toys.

Hasbro reportedly discussed the gender change citing that he needed a “modern makeover.”

It will be fascinating to see how parents react to purchasing this new character.

Many parents prefer not to “modernize” the genders of their children’s toys.

Fox News reached out to Hasbro for comment but got no response.

Mr. Potato Head has been an incredibly famous toy and was even featured in the Toy Story films.

It’s unclear if Pixar will go back and edit the gender of Mr. Potato Head out of the films.

As of 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, Mr. Potato Head was trending on Twitter at number two.

Here is how many are reacting:

Dave Portnoy’s Barstool News Network sarcastically chimed in:

While most of Twitter was not a fan of the “neutering of Mr. Potato Head,” some people were a fan of it.
