Do you remember at the end of the original Toy Story movie that all of the toys had learned to be hopeful when Andy got new presents? Instead of being fearful that, as old toys, they would be replaced, they became joyous over the prospect of meeting different additions to the group. At one point Mr. Potato Head is heard chanting “Mrs. Potato Head! Mrs. Potato Head! Mrs. Potato Head!” during yet another party for Andy.
The result? We have this Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head walking toy:
Don’t worry. It was consensual. This cute little couple is about 3″ tall and stand just under 5″ wide. They are permanently ‘married’ together by a bent bar that enables the walking action.
Some couples get matching tattoos while others get a toy companies name stamped on their butts. Each to his/her own, I guess!
And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Here at last is an old married couple going for a walk:
That last step was a doozy!
This toy was produced in 1999 by Hasbro Inc. Toy Story 2 came out in that year so this would be an original toy released to promote the film. Can you believe this sequel is over 20 years old?!?
Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head aren’t always together. Sometimes the man of the potato sack has to go to work. And where does Mr. Potato Head make his living? Check out this Mr. Potato Head Mug post to find out!
