Reinventing the potato

Did you know that Mr. Potato Head first started off as a bunch of face and body parts that children stuck into real potatoes?  (To see this picture and others, click here.)  It was only later that Mr. Potato Head acquired his iconic plastic body.

Inspired by this classic toy, I created my own fruit and vegetable friends.

Meet Richie Raab.
Unfortunately, he met an untimely death at dinner.  Mwah ha ha ha.

Nevermind.  Here are best gal pals Orangina Bunny and Katie Kale.

Product testing time.  I don't have any children, so Charlie will have to do.

Which toy will he like best?

Katie Kale is the winner!  (And sadly, also the snack.)
Back to the drawing board.
