Mr. Potato Head Heads To New York

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – New York is known as the Big Apple, but for the next week, it should be the “Big Potato.”

That’s because famed toy icon Mr. Potato Head is heading to Manhattan to mash it up with the locals.

Starting Monday (Nov. 20), Mr. Potato Head is setting up headquarters at the Chelsea Market so that he can russet – er, rustle – up interest in taters.

To that end, the plastic potato will be hosting cooking displays on various potato dishes including mashed potatoes made with white chocolate.

In addition, there will be potato sack races and a pair of Swarovski crystal-encrusted Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head figures will go on display for the first time.

But while Mr. Potato Head is moving to New York, he won’t become a permanent fixture at the clubs or hot spots because he’s only staying for a week.
