Mr Potato Head
Contest Directions: Mr. Potato Head turned 60 this year. 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." Lerner would often take potatoes from his mother's garden and using various other fruits and vegetables as facial features, he would make dolls with which his younger sisters could play. The grape-eyed, carrot-nosed, potato-headed dolls became the principal idea behind the plastic toy which would later be manufactured. Mr. Potato Head was first put out by Hasbro, but only the parts, not the body. Yes, the original had you sticking things into real potatoes! That's why the toy proved controversial - with the war and food rationing a recent memory for most Americans, the use of fruits and vegetables to make toys was considered irresponsible and wasteful. Hasbro started selling it with the body only in the 60s.
To celebrate 60th birthday of Mr. Potato Head, photoshop it any way you wish.
Many thanks to Kellie for the contest concept.
