Sales of existing Mr. Potato Head toys rocketed up the best selling charts of Amazon.com after Hasbro announced Thursday they would remove “Mr.” from the brand this fall so all could feel “welcome in the Potato Head world.”

Fans of the original Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are rushing to the Internet to pick up classic versions of the famous toy.

On the Amazon Movers and Shakers list for toys Friday afternoon, ten different Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head items rocketed up the best selling list, and the gender-specific male potato head parts showed a jump of 74,525 percent.

The company clarified after overwhelming backlash that the toys themselves would remain, just without the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” names.
