You've never seen Mr. Potato Head like this before!

Hasbro has teamed up with ASDA, a British grocery store chain, to give Mr. Potato Head a "wonky veg makeover". The limited edition Mr. Potato Head is being auctioned to raise money for the UK based food waste charity, FareShare.

If you want to get your hands on the limited edition "wonky" toy you have until July 3rd to get your bid in. Every penny raised from the auction will go to FareShare to help fight hunger and food waste.

"We are very grateful that the proceeds from this unique Wonky Mr. Potato Head auction will enable us to help those charities feed more people, and we’d encourage people to bid big. Every £1 we raise will mean we can provide enough food to make four meals for vulnerable and hungry men, women and children here in the UK.” Gemma Bergin, buying manager for toys at ASDA told Toy News.
