Ghost Costume for a Tater Head
Dress up your Mr. Potato Head for Halloween!
Mr. Potato Head told me he wanted to be a ghost for Halloween this year! So I obliged him and found a costume.
I am sure there are other costumes for a Potato Head out there, but this ghost trick or treat outfit is just too boo cute to pass up.
Scroll down to see 'Tater's costume and do not wait too long to buy it. They are selling like hot potatoes.
Just who is Mr. Potato Head?
"Mr. Potato Head is an American toy consisting of a plastic model of a potato which can be decorated with a variety of attachable plastic parts such as ears and eyes to make a face. The toy was invented and developed by George Lerner in 1949, and first manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952. It was originally produced as separate plastic parts to be stuck into a real potato or other vegetable. A plastic potato body has been part of the kit since 1964." Read more on Wikipedia.

Mr. Potato Head Trick or Tater!
I have this tater in my Halloween closet! Yes, I do. My grand children love playing with him starting about September 15th. I have to get my money's worth so that is when I get this little fella out of hiding for Halloween. Between this toy and the window stickies, the grandkids love coming to my house to get in the Halloween Spirit!
I store my Trick or Tater in a large zip-lock type bag.

Mr. Potato Head Ghost has a friend! - Mr. Pumpkin Head!
Mr. Potato Head Pumpkin Push Ins on Amazon! - Mr. Pumpkin wants to get into the act with Mr. Potato Head this Halloween
A delightful way to decorate your jackolantern! You saw my pumpkin above and you might want to make one yourself, so below you will find some of the "costumes" available on Amazon. I would recommend that you have an ice pick to make a guide hole for your Mr. Potato Push-ins. I do not think that plastic pieces are strong enough to penetrate a pumpkin's skin.
This is really a spooky looking outfit for a pumpkin.
I must get one of these kits so my pumpkin can have a witchy girlfriend.
I know, not a Halloween theme, but my grandsons love a pirate. And remember, you can mix and match any of the pieces to make your jackolantern totally unique.
I had a blast looking for all the ghostly Mr. Potato Head toys. I was so excited when I discovered the Elvis themed Heads. Personally, I think it is so clever of the toy manufacturers to come up with costumes that can be used on the classic heads currently on the market. Sure, that means more little pieces to keep up with, but imagine the hours of fun your kids will have designing a new "look" for Mr. Spud.
