How can you call this a toy?
on 14 May 2005
I remember as a child being given stick on noses, mouths, ears, and feet, and spending many a rainy afternoon tormenting and animating a potato. Finding a personality, transforming an inanimate object into something apparently alive and sentient is an ancient tradition, dating back way beyond history. To that extent, "Mr.Potato Head" is a timeless and infallible plaything. Small children will love toys like this, will laugh and chortle - just make sure they don't swallow any of the bits! It's a great toy. It will still be a great toy a century from now.
But can you really describe 'Darth Tater' as a toy? This is a work of art! This is satire made plastic! This is a great treasure for any 'Star Wars' fan! This is something which will reduce sane, intelligent adults to the level of a babbling, bib-wearing bairn! This is a cruel little device you can spring upon friends and watch the trappings of civilisation fall away as they regress to childhood giggling. This is positively wonderful! I've already bought three for friends and family - and earned vast quantities of brownie points for my sense of humour and generous nature. (I am, of course, too sophisticated to need a 'Darth Tater' myself!)
Seriously funny! Will have adults and children laughing for hours. And the sort of plaything which will make regular appearances and cause perennial smiles and laughter.
