Superheroes and celebrities with these Mr Potato Heads and Mrs Potato Head – complete with accessories.
Mr Potato Heads
Fun for all the family with Mr & Mrs Potato Head superhero figures of Batman, The Joker, Superman, Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine and Wonder Woman. Mr Potato Head figures of the 11th Doctor and his arch enemy the Dalek; with Blue Hawaii Elvis and Comeback Elvis. And my favourite a Mr Potato Head version of latter day hero Homer Simpson, produced in 2014 for the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons TV show.
Mr Potato Heads were first introduced by George Lerner in 1949 and the toy consisted of a variety of plastic accessories and facial features which could be used to transform the humble spud into some very interesting characters. Distributed by Hasbro at this time, and much loved by children and adults for many years, the format was changed in the 1960’s due to health and safety regulations; the potato was replaced by a plastic body which could be decorated with the various pieces. In the 1970′ larger accessories were introduced to prevent a choking hazard for very small children.
In recent years Mr Potato Heads have been distributed by Hasbro and PPW Toys; the characters include Super Heroes, musicians, film and television characters and celebrities. Larger than life versions of Mr & Mrs Potato Head can be seen in the 1980’s section of Disney World in Florida. Still much loved Mr & Mrs Potato Head made an appearance in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 – their popularity continues to grow!
