Back to Basics: Classic Toy #9

I love that my son is old enough to enjoy playing with Mr. Potato Head! This was one of my favorite toys when I was a child, and it is quickly becoming one of Baby Bear's favorites as well. With Mr. Potato Head, my son can practice correctly placing facial anatomy or just have fun being silly. Sometimes when he grabs a piece for Mr. Potato Head's face, he points to the part of his face that matches (i.e. he points to his own ear while holding Mr. Potato Head's ear). Plus, placing the pieces in the holes requires hand-eye coordination and a little hand strength. You just can't go wrong with Mr. Potato Head!
