Mr. Potato Head Inventor
National Mr. Potato Head Day
-- In the early 1940s, Brooklyn-born toy inventor George Lerner came up with the idea of inserting small, pronged body and face parts into fruits and vegetables to create a funny face man. Mr. Potato Head was born on May 1, 1952. The original toy cost $0.98 and contained hands, feet, ears, two mouths, two pairs of eyes, four noses, three hats, eyeglasses, a pipe, and eight felt pieces resembling facial hair. The original Mr. Potato Head kit did not come with a potato body, so parents had to provide their own potato, which children could stick in the various pieces.

Read: Mr. Potato Head Inventor: George Lerner
-- In this engaging biography, readers will learn about the inventor of Mr. Potato Head, George Lerner. Follow the story of Lerner as he takes Mr. Potato Head from its start as a cereal box prize to a kit of pieces kids stuck into real potatoes to the addition of Mrs. Potato Head and the entire Potato Head family to stardom in the movie Toy Story. Sidebars, historic photos, and a glossary enhance readers' understanding of this topic.
