Mr. Potato Head is no longer a mister according to Hasbro.

Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year.

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.

Hasbro said Mr. Potato Head, which has been around for about 70 years, needed a modern makeover.

So Hasbro has dropped the Mr. Potato Head and just gone with Potato Head instead.

Recently the gang from Toy Story got a makeover in Tokyo Disneyland. Woody, Buzz and Jessie all received a modern makeover and they look so much better in my honest opinion.
