Toys were created even during the pre-historic times, and have been made for thousands of years. Perhaps using objects to create toys is one of the most significant attributes that differentiates humans from animals. Modern toys are of course way too complex and sophisticated, and quite expensive too!
Of all the toys from the 20th century, Mr. Potato Head must be one of the most popular because of the attractive appearance and also the ease of making one at home by oneself. All one needs is a plastic model of a potato to which eyes, ears and other parts of a face can be easily added to create a personalized Mr. Potato Head. Of course, Mr. Potato Head was the first toy to be advertised on the TV and that is quite a distinction indeed!
The funny thing is, over the decades people have begun to create Potato Heads inspired by several other characters than Mr. Potato Head himself! They are not only cool, but look amazing and would drive even adults crazy. So without any further introduction, here are the 28 Geekiest Mr. Potato Head Designs which really make the classic Potato Head toy into an artistic item.
