How old is the Mr. Potato Head game?

Seems like it's been around forever.


Answer by  k80 (125)

Mr. Potato head was invented in 1949 and first distributed in 1952 by Hasbro. Mr. Potato Head was initially a bunch of plastic parts intended to be pressed into real fruits and vegetables. This method was considered wasteful, as this was during wartime where foods were scarce, so then it evolved into the plastic potato we know and love today.

It does seem like it has been around forever. In fact, it is one of the oldest manufactured toys that is still on the market. Mr. Potatohead was invented in 1949. It began being manufactured for mass-production by Hasbro in 1952.

Mr.Potato Head came out in 1952. So that means that he is now fifty eight years old. George Lerner is the man who originally came up with the idea for this toy.
