Potato head kids , trash or treasure ?

So I saw an old mobile home  being cleaned out the other day .This place has been completely covered in ivy and kudzu for a really long time,Like at least 15 years maybe even 20 or more. A few weeks back there was a bunch of people out on the property hacking, chopping and mowing and after about a week they uncovered the mobile home and like 6 cars and an old ( now flat) storage building. I figured the place was probably empty because frankly I hadn't seen or thought about the place in so long .But it wasn't empty , oh no it was far from empty . The place was packed from floor to ceiling with junk .These potato head kids came out an old christmas popcorn canister and I was actually pretty shocked to see them because they are something you just don't see that much . I would have loved to have dug around more but the people cleaning it out said that nearly everything was covered in mold and rat poop so I shouldn't mess with it. These guys are perfectly fine though and just for safety sake I gave them a good bath.

 Now truthfully I wish it had been a can full of He man or gi joe figures but heck I really cant complain seeing they were completely free.

    1. I think Mcdonald's had them at one point and also Wendy's had them as a regional thing but I think that more then half of these are actual store bought toys , they just say Hasbro 1987 on them.

  4. P.S. Check out the cast for the cartoon. You'll see some familiar names; Breckin Meyer, Scott Grimes, Kellie Martin, and you can't forget Kenneth Mars and Linda Gary as Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.
