)-- Stock Boys LLC recently launched a new blog on mr potato head parts, toys, games, and accessories. It all started back in 1950, when inventor George Lerner came up with the idea for Mr Potato Head Parts. The parts would be stuck into potatoes and other vegetables in order to form different characters.
The problem was that in those times, the public had a bad taste in their mouth when it came to wasting food. Regardless of perception, one company decided to take a chance on the toy. Hasbro purchased and created the original mr potato heads in 1952. The mr potato head toy was ahead of its time, in that, it was the first toy ever advertised on television. But there was still the drawback of having to use real potatoes.
It wasn’t until the early 60’s that Hasbro came out with the plastic body to go with the mr potato head parts, which started to include glasses, hair styles, and hats. Hence, mr potato head toys were born, which led to generations of kids being able to use these toys to express their creativity and individuality.
For the next thirty years mr potato heads popularity grew. Mr potato head games, puzzles, creative play sets, mrs potato head, and even video games were produced. It was such a hit that non-profit companies were using it to promote their causes.
This toy has not only lasted thru out the years, but it has regained its popularity. Nowadays, there are more styles of mr potato head toys than ever before. Not to mention all the mr potato head parts, games, and accessories.
The newly launched Everything Mr Potato Heads blog provides an in depth look into all the mr potato head toys, parts, games, and accessories. Mr potato heads have captured the hearts and imaginations of kids for over fifty years and will continue to do so, because with the variety of mr Potato head parts, toys, games, and accessories available today there is something for everyone.
