Popular children’s characters Mr Men are being gender-neutralised to Persons, it has been revealed.
The characters are no longer known as Mr, and they are most certainly not Men.
Instead, kids will welcome their new favourties, including Tickle, Nosey and Forgetful, all without a Mr prefix.
The news follows revelations that Mr Potato Head was becoming gender-neutralised, just to save any lasting psychological damage to traumatised children.
The former Mr Men books and TV shows will now be republished and re-edited to unveil the Persons brand.
Gender-neutral campaigner Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “Times have moved on and we have broken away from traditional gender norms.
“Mr Men was unfortunate in that they were Mr and they were men. A double whammy.
“The new Persons collection will be loved by kids of all genders, not that we’re suggesting children have different genders.”
Mr Men began as a series of books written by Roger Hargreaves in 1971.
