Mr Potato Head Toy Story 3-Review and Giveaway

***and the winner is… The Halton Mom***

Mr. Potato Head is an American toy icon.  He has been around for what feels like forever.  He was invented in 1949 by George Lerner, and Hasbro began manufacturing and distributing the spud in 1952. The original toy did not come with a potato body, it was a kit of hands, feet, ears, two mouths, two pairs of eyes, four noses, three hats, eyeglasses, a pipe, and 8 felt pieces which were supposed to be facial hair.  Mr. Potato Head has come a long way in the last 58 years.  Light-years, to be exact.  The humble toy was launched into outer space with Toy Story 3, when Hasbro introduced Spud Lightyear and Woody’s Tater Round Up.

I remember well the hours of kooky fun I had as a kid mixing up all of Mr. Potato Heads pieces.  My kids first discovered Mr. Potato Head at the pediatrician’s office.  Mister thought it was fun to put Tato’s nose where his arms are supposed to go.  So, when I received an opportunity to review Spud Lightyear and Woody’s Tater Round Up, I knew that the kids would LOVE them.

I was right.

As soon as Mister saw me open the box, he shouted, “Tato, Tato!”  He enjoyed showing Sister how to pull the pieces off and put them in the wrong spot.  While the toys are recommended for ages 2 and up, with supervised play, Sister enjoyed them as well.  Mister has a little bit of trouble getting the visor or Spud Lightyear to stay in place, and has to have help putting on Woody’s jacket.  Otherwise, my two spuds can enjoy hours of fun playing with the plastic spuds.
