Mr. Potato Head

Last week, I had the pleasure of watching my two nieces in the morning, before getting them off to school. The house was full of life every morning, with four little girls playing dolls,watching cartoons,or creating puppet shows. One day, they had fun playing one of my childhood favorites- Mr. Potato Head. Here is a photo of their creations!!

I laughed at the site of them. They must be modern Mr. Potato heads, because they look to me like they are break-dancing. This is where I got my inspiration to learn more about Mr. Potato Head and his history.

A few fun facts!!

-Mr. Potato Head was developed in 1949 by George Lerner.
-George got the idea from playing with fruits and vegetables from his mother's garden.
-The toy was manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952.

Fun Photos!

I am a BIG fan of Mr. Potato head and so are my daughters! I love the old fashion toys we used to have around when we were little (and when our parents were little) because they require that our children use their imagination :-)

And who knew there was so much history to Mr. Potato Head? Wow! He's come a long way baby!

Your daughter is so cute to think my shoes are oooooh, awesome! LOL I know they rock if I have her approval! And yes, gotta wear that push up bra too. Who every invented that (probably a man!) was a pure genius!
