Last year it was announced that "Mr Potato Head goes gender neutral as Hasbro drops mister from brand name". The company offered public recognition that the toy is a potato and doesn't need a title. The brand name and logo will change to Potato head while the characters of Mr and Mrs Potato Head will live on!
