Mr. Potato Head Turns 60 This Month

Mr. Potato Head is turning 60 this month.
The iconic Hasbro toy first hit the shelves back in 1952, and has been a staple in playrooms ever since.
Over the past six decades, more than 100-million Mr. and Mrs. Potato head toys have been sold.
More than 30 licensed Potato head characters have been created — and there are more than 350 Potato Head parts and pieces on the market.
That’s a lot of ears, lips and feet to get lost in the toy box!
Mr. Potato Head has appeared in television commercials and even had a star supporting role in the hit “Toy Story” movie series.
But those weren’t his first brushes with stardom.
He actually made history from the beginning, as the first toy in history to be advertised on television.
And that’s no small potatoes. (CNN)
