Yeah, sure it was stupid. But wait - what about the REAL Mr. Potato head, the original one where you used a REAL POTATO and just added the pieces to make a character. I thought it was a lot of fun, and then mom could cook the potatoes afterward.

That improves it but still...pretty much a one-trick pony unless you make your own features.

I'm still trying to find a youtube video for the Cootie Bug - remember that? Another plastic thing that you put together, and for what?

thanks for acknowledging my vote, Patti. By the way your blog is recommended today on mine.

Yeah, but darn I played with one circa 1975 and loved it. And, hey, he was kinda funny in TOY STORY.

Speaking of potatoes, how about the ridiculous Spud-gun that left little bits of food all over the house after the kids had a frolicing feud on a rainy day? --- Yummy! --- Not.

I think I missed that one.
