Vintage Merit “Crazy Faces” creative toy (fruit and vegetables not supplied!)
Whilst the vastly more well-known Mr Potato Head was basically a plastic body of a potato into which pieces were inserted, this Merit “Crazy Faces” toy takes a more literal approach – in the sense that actual fruit and vegetables are the intended recipients of the pieces. Helpfully, the box points out that the fruit and vegetables are “not supplied”. Included in the set are feet, ears, eyes, hands, and various other pieces, including wig hair! It all looks like good, clean fun. Perhaps not clean, sorry parents! 😉
It’s possibly not 100% complete – a couple of felt pieces are perhaps missing and might be re-creatable – but it is nonetheless a fun item and very usable “as is” if that is the intent.
