Toys from Christmas Past…at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis! All this week we are looking at some of the top Christmas toys that children may have asked (begged?) Santa to give them.

Today we have Mr. Potato Head!

Hey Baby Boomers, we didn’t forget you!  Mr. Potato Head sprouted onto the scene in 1951 and the toy was simply accessories…you provided the potato!  The bottom image is an image of the toy that most of us associate with this beloved mainstay.

“I am Cry Baby. It’s very hard to separate myself from the character. It’s still something that I’m trying to figure out. I am the character that I made for myself. I knew that I wanted the album to be called Cry Baby for the longest time and my main reason for it was because I was teased as a kid for being super emotional and I took things way too seriously.“

Cry Baby asks
  • Cry Baby: how often do you cry or get sad?
  • Dollhouse: do you keep secrets from your family?
  • Sippy Cup: what do you do to cheer yourself up?
  • Carousel: what's your biggest fear?
  • Alphabet Boy: do you stand up for yourself or resent people who do you wrong?
  • Soap: what's something you've said that you wish you didn't?
  • Training Wheels: do you fall easily?
  • Pity Party: what's your saddest memory?
  • Tag, your it: do you trust strangers?
  • Milk and Cookies: if you could kill anyone in the world who would it be, and why?
  • Mrs. Potato Head: what's you're best feature? (physical or personality)
  • Mad Hatter: what's the craziest thing you've done?
  • Play Date: is it easier to express yourself or bottle it all up?
  • Teddy Bear: have you ever misplaced your trust in someone?
  • Cake: what do you do when you've been used or exploited?

                                                      It’s always the same war.
                                             Only the names of the dead change.
                                                   The war is always the same.
                                             Only the names and places change.
                                           There are demons upon this earth.
                                              They live in our hearts and minds. 
                                                              (A.G. RIDDLE)


                                            It was a kind of sin, certainly, to forget.
                                               But it was not easy to remember.
                               Especially when names changed, languages changed.
                                            A century-old name held that century. 
                          When replaced, a hundred years were wiped out at one stroke.
                         Amnesia set it; reality itself, being metamorphic, was affected.
