When we had the chance to review Mr. Potato Head: Princess Sweet Potato, I was thrilled. I grew up with a Mr. Potato Head and remember the hours I used to spend changing around his face. There was nothing more fun than creating a different looking potato head. It is always fun for me to see my daughter enjoy the very same things that I enjoyed as a child.
When Gracie and I opened the box, she was SO excited! She just kept talking about Princess Sweet Potato's ears and shoes. The first thing Gracie did was try to wear Princess Sweet Potato's earrings. She quickly found that they don't work on her ears but had a blast rearranging them all over Princess Sweet Potato.
I don't think there was a part of Princess Sweet Potato that Gracie didn't enjoy. She was busy for at least an hour that first day.
Princess Sweet Potato definitely is made to last little hands pulling and tugging at her. Gracie enjoys filling the back of Princess Sweet Potato with her eyes, ears and mouth. She does this all day long - takes them off, puts them in her back. Takes them out of her back and puts them back on Princess Sweet Potato. Back and forth all day.
The only issue we had with Princess Sweet Potato is that her crown is hard to keep on. This sure doesn't deter Gracie from playing with her and frankly, I don't think she really cares if she has the crown or not. I could see this as a slight frustration to a child who is particular about those things though.
We love Princess Sweet Potato and I think we will eventually be adding to Gracie's Mr. Potato Head collection over the next few years. These trigger the imagination, keep their little fingers moving, and keep them out of trouble.
You can find Mr. Potato Head - Princess Sweet Potato on Amazon, at Walmart or Target, and many places where toys are sold. Princess Sweet Potato would make an excellent Valentine's gift for any little girl two and older!
