Mr. Potato Head (Hasbro)


Back when we were kids, Mr. Potato Head was nothing more than a collection of plastic facial features looking for a real potato to call his own. The burning question was: What kind of potato would you choose? Smooth and round, bent and gnarly... the possibilities for potatoes with personality seemed endless. Over the years, Mr. Potato Head has gone through some changes: He married, had little spuds, and eventually gained a plastic body (hey, couldn't some of your original parts use replacing?) And although he's spun himself off into software, books, keychains, movie star roles (in the Toy Story series) and more, his basic charm remains the same, as proven by the 50 million Potato Heads sold in the past 43 years.

Ages 3-5 years
