What is the story behind Mr. Potato Head?
For those Mr. Potato Head fans, some fun facts for you, Mr. Potato Head was invented and created by George Lerner in 1949 and shortly thereafter in 1952, first manufactured and distributed. The toy was the first toy to be advertised on television and has been in production since. Even more historical facts, in 1975, the main potato part of the toy doubled in size, while the accessories adjusted to scale size.
In 1985, Mr. Potato Head received four postal votes in the run for mayor of Boise, Idaho. He didn’t win, but as verified by Guinness World Records, holds the record for “most votes for Mr. Potato Head in a political campaign.” In 1995, Mr. Potato Head had a leading role in the Disney/Pixar animated film Toy Story. In 2000, the toy was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
In 2020, Hasbro created a sustainable version, made from a plant-based plastic derived from sugarcane, and taking on the name of, Mr. Potato Head Goes Green. Hasbro has also most recently updated the brand marketing name as simply Potato Head, while still keeping the individual characters of Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.
