That's Mr. Potato head to you. We include Mr.
Potato Head here because nearly all of us played with him at som
point, but in reality, he was first distributed by Hasbro in
1952. Originally, the toy was a box of plastic pieces that
you would actually stuff into a real potato, but due to
government safety regulations, a plastic potato was included by
By the mid 1970's, the Mr.
Potato Head that most of us knew and loved came to market.
Everything was bigger due to the child safety regulations by the
U.S. government. As the years have gone by, Potato Head
has changed some, but the premise is the same. In later
years, themed Potato Heads were produced, such as the Star Wars
parody with Dart Tater and R2-POTATOO.
