Guide Review - Indiana Jones Mr Potato Head from Playskool

In all honesty I would never have imagined a potato to be an action hero. Well, any kind of action from a spud would be of utmost surprise. But hey!! This view is for the tragic ones with little or no imaginations. In the world of young minds, anything is possible right from magic carpets to humanoid robots. So an adventure seeking potato should be of no surprise.

The Indiana Jones Mr Potato Head Idaho Jones Spud is not to be judged by his cute looks alone. His heart yearns for adventure just like his legendary heroic counterpart. The Indiana Jones Mr. Potato Head sports a jacket and fedora hat along with a bull whip. Talk about authentic. Mr. Potato Head Indiana Jones Taters of the Lost Ark, Idaho Jones Spud not only looks the part but also enjoys the famous hero’s music. Press and release the fedora hat to hear three different short segments from the Indiana Jones theme song or hold it down to hear it play straight through. The music will recreate the adventurous mood for kids as they traverse the exciting locations along with their spud buddy in their imaginations.

However, it should be mentioned that Playskool Mr. Potato Head Indiana Jones Taters of the Lost Ark, Idaho Jones Spud is not a typical action figure. It’s a potato after all so don’t expect high flexibility or shape shifting modifications out of this toy. What you see is pretty much what you get. The brown oval shaped body, the oversized bright red nose and pink ears are designed to appeal to the children. The different attachable parts and pieces also add to the fun as you can mix and match them to fit anywhere on the potato body creating unique and wacky looks.

Priced at $14.99, this darling little character which measures approximately 6" will provide loads of fun for children aged between 24 months - 12 years. Requires 2 "AAA" batteries which are included.
