Times change

Everyone is familiar with Mr. Potato Head, especially if you’re a Toy Story fan…

However, in 1952 when I was 7, the Hassenfeld Brothers Company (which later became Hasbro) came out with the original Mr. Potato Head which required a real potato or other fruit and vegetable.

I remember sticking those little plastic eyes, nose, mouth and ears into a real potato. Actually, I think that was more fun back then.
