I don’t think I can name a single person around my age that doesn’t know what a Mr. Potato Head is. Sadly, I doubt the kids of today know what one is because until now, I haven’t seen one in several years. For those that don’t know, it was a plastic potato that you could put all kinds of body parts on. Looking back, it was kind of a silly toy but it was still fun as a kid. Anyway, I didn’t know it but apparently you can even get Star Wars parts for Mr. Potato Head. One of the awesome people I follow on twitter, Alex Kay (@6ftinheels), sent a tweet yesterday with a picture of her Mr Potato Head outfitted to look like R2-D2. Not that I can remember, but I’m pretty sure this is geekier than any part combination I ever tried as a kid.
