For more than 50 years, Mr. Potato Head
toys have been a hit among American children - and increasingly, collectors. This collector's website has everything Potato Headian, whether you want to see 2008 Presidential Candidates holding Mr P
or the "psychedelic" Mr. Potato Bug, Bird, and Fish
from the early 1970s or read about how it almost became a forgotten cereal premium
instead of a "funny face kit" for unused fruits and vegetables. Then there are the pictures
from 2002 when Rhode Island distributed 5 foot fiberglass Mr. Potato Head statues which were decorated by artists through the state. There's more. A lot more.

Wizards of the Coast
was quite a strange place to work for in the early days. A gamer paradise of freebies, fun, and sex. A game or Truth of Swill changes everything. Now WOTC is owned by Hasbro and the February closing of the Seattle Gamecenter is the final nail in the coffin of gamer paradise.
