Of course, as a child, I was quite shocked when I first saw this style on store shelves. I was very used to the original small style of Mr. Potato Head with its numerous accessories. I never thought I could warm up to this new bizarre armless version with limited pieces. Yet, it wasn't long before I grew to love everything that made this style so different, like its lack of arms and its giant, bulky shape. I grew to adore the simplicity of this Potato Head and the challenge of making several different faces with only a small amount of body parts. It was new! Unique! Special! I loved it and I still do!
Armless Mr. Potato Head was also advertised on television with this very catchy jingle: "I made you! You know it's true! Mr. Potato Head, I made you!" Ah, long live this armless wonder!
