  • Better than finding them behind the sofa three weeks later, shriveled and moldy. ;-)

  • I only got to play with Mr. Potato Head when we were having potatoes for dinner. When I was done, mom fixed them for dinner.

  • Cool toy. Treeseed's citation is right, though. Originally it required you to use your own tater; later it came with a plastic one. :-)

  • Me too, Treeseed. We actually used real potatoes, though. I don't recall having a plastic potato. Maybe I lost it...

  • Mr. Potato Head is a popular children's toy, first sold in 1952 by Hasbro, consisting of a plastic model of a potato which can be decorated with attachable plastic parts, such as a mustache, hat and nose, to make a face. Shoes can be added as well.

    When it was first sold to the public in 1952, it became the first toy to be sold through national television advertising and netted Hasbro more than $4 million in its first year of production. In 1953, Mrs. Potato Head was added, and soon after, Brother Spud and Sister Yam completed the Potato Head family. Although originally produced as separate plastic parts to be stuck into a real potato or other vegetable, a plastic body was added to the kit in 1964.

    You cannot know how I clamoured for a Mr. Potato Head in 1956! One of the coolest toys ever.
