My kids begged me for a Mr. Potato Head when they were little. I think it had something to do with the first Toy Story that came out. Mr. Potato Head was so sassy and funny, and my kids adored him. Then the 2nd Toy Story came out and they just had to get Mr. Potato Head a wife. It is amazing to me how many hours were spent playing with those two spud toys. Even though my kids are pretty much grown now, when they are babysitting other children, if there is a Mr. Potato Head around, they are going to play with it.
Let’s just face it — the spud is a wanted toy!
Speaking of Mr. Potato Head — have you seen the new app that you can download that is totally free?
Callaway Digital Arts and Hasbro have collaborated together and have brought the spud to life in this interactive app for the Ipad, Iphone, and Ipod Touch. Featuring a fully 3D character, customization options, and user-controlled animations, Mr. Potato Head Create & Play lets players embark on silly adventures that are full of surprises and capture and save delightful moments as photos. Your child can enjoy dressing up Mr. Potato Head with dozens of parts and outfits.
There are tons of ways to interact with Mr. Potato Head:
