As for the toy itself, Mr. Potato Head has actually been around in 1949 before Hasbro mass produced and distributed the toy under its brand name. A man named George Lerner was a Brooklyn-born toy inventor who originally dreamt up the concept of this toy as a set of plastic molded accessories that were detachable body and face parts that could be inserted into real vegetables or fruits. A real potato became the ideal prop for these removable accessories, creating Mr. Potato Head! The toy became very popular during the 50s and 60s with many incarnations and spin offs. As new versions were added, face and body parts were created with such parts as tomatoes for ears, grapes for eyes, and carrots for noses, and despite what food were used, Mr. Potato Head was always hilarious. After a few years of success, a Mrs. Potato Head, a sister Yam, a brother Spud, and neighbors were added to the toy line. Each character had transposable parts for arms, legs, mouths, eyes, noses, ears, and hair. It doesn’t really matter which nose, eyes, or mouth is selected, Mr. Potato Head will have a lot of fun at the party. So we hope you took at good look at the best Mr. Potato Head ideas for Halloween and find the one you want to wear at your next Halloween costume party this year!
