'Mister Potato Head' turns 60!

Mister potato head is turning 60!

The iconic Hasbro toy first hit the shelves back in 1952, and has been a staple in playrooms ever since.  

Over the past six decades, more than 100-million Mister and Mrs. Potato Head toys have been sold.

He actually made history from the beginning, as the first toy in history to be advertised on television.  

And that's no small potatoes.
