How great are the Mr. Men and Little Miss Google Doodles in honor of author/creator Roger Hargreaves birthday?!
I love these guys and gals. Â Sure they tend to reinforce gendered stereotypes, but they came in Arby’s kids meals in the 1980s and Mr. Strong looked like a succulent cherry Now and Later.
I had a love/hate relationship with Little Miss Bossy, love because she was awesome and we had a deep connection, and hate mostly because I don’t think it’s an appropriate thing to call your nine-year-old daughter, but I’m sure I told them that after I explained to them exactly how to prepare the mashed potatoes I had no intention of eating. Â Love you, Mom and Dad!
