Long Description:
The Hasbro Toy Company has its headquarters in Pawtucket, RI. In 1949 the Mr. Potato Head toy was invented and developed by George Lerner and manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952. The original version had plastic parts that where stuck into a real potato or other vegetable. In 1964 the all plastic Mr. Potato Head was introduced.

In 2000, the state of Rhode Island used 6' tall Mr. Potato Head statues as their travel ambassadors to boost tourism. Between 37 and 45 statues were placed around the state. Today only a few remain. The one in Carousel Village in Roger Williams Park is a well preserved version of the Mr. Potato Head statues.
