A Homer Simpson Mr. Potato Head

It was in 1952 that Hasbro released its very first Mr. Potato Head. This children’s toy was originally produced as separate plastic parts with pushpins that could be stuck into a real potato.

But since potatoes go bad and parents were complaining that their children’s were rotting, Hasbro introduced a plastic potato body with the set in 1964. The toy has gone on to be such a hit over the years that I even dressed up as Mr. Potato Head for Halloween.

After what seemed like a no-brainer idea 25 years ago, Hasbro have finally decided to release the Homer Simpson Mr. Potato Head. This is the $18 Homer Simpson Mr. Potato Head Doll sold at Entertainment Earth. Unfortunately the Mr. Potato Homer doesn’t come with interchangeable parts, but it’s still a pretty cool collectable for Toy fans and Simpsons fans.
