Hasbro toys is ditching decades-old toy Mr Potato Head because he isn’t “gender neutral,” meaning here is another thing future generations will lose thanks to the radical LGBTQ agenda.
That’s right, folks, Mr. Potato Head is offensive and evil, now, thanks to the radical gay/transgender lobby.
I’ll bet back in the day when you were sitting on the floor in your bed room that you never knew just how evil your plastic potato was as you jabbed in his many eyes, lips and hats.
Starting in the fall, Hasbro will sell Potato Head family kits. They’ll come with two non-gendered “adult” potatoes, one “baby” potato and 42 accessories, according to a spokeswoman. That will let kids decide the parents’ gender, rather than being told they are “Mr.” and “Mrs.”
The traditional Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head dolls will still “live on as part of the brand,” the company said, without elaborating.
The original Mr. Potato Head was first sold in 1952 and required you to use a real potato to stick the plastic eyes and lips into. By the 60s, though, the plastic potato head debuted and it has been plastic ever since.
This isn’t the first time Hasbro has PC’d Mr. P, though.
“Mr. Potato Head dolls were first sold in 1952, and have long been a top seller for the Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based toy giant. The line has been altered to keep up with the times before — a pipe was dropped in 1987 over tobacco concerns. In 1992, the Potato Head backstory was rewritten to embrace a more active lifestyle and lose references to ‘couch potatoes,’ according to Hasbro,” Bloomberg added.
