A Few Parts?

A few weeks ago, my brother asked me to buy him some extra parts for Mr. Potato Head. Baby J was really into his Mr. Potato Head. Unfortunately, he’s only got the Easter Bunny version. I looked online to see if I could buy a kit that had a bunch of parts, but that was a serious no go. Nobody had anything. But the reason why my brother asked me to get extra parts was that in Downtown Disney at Once Upon a Toy (And also at Magic Kingdom, but that’s a serious pain in the butt to get to), you can totally get the parts by themselves! You can get them individually or you can stuff as much as you can into a small box or into this potato head container. Three boxes worth of stuff fits into one potato head container, but the container was the cost for about 2.5 boxes. And since I am very good at Tetris, I figured I could get way more stuff in the head than they expected.

Of course I bought the potato head container! I could have anything I wanted of Potato Head parts as long as it would fit. So I spent about 45 minutes packing this thing with parts. I wanted to get my money’s worth!

It took me fifteen minutes to get the pieces back inside!

In total, I got a little over 60 parts (some of which were duplicates. There was extra space!!). And of course, I forgot to get feet for the Darth Vader and the Storm Trooper. But hey, Baby J won’t know.

I took a photo and sent it to my brother. He said just a few parts. He didn’t know I was going to go crazy with the parts. Hey, I’m the auntie, I get to go crazy on stuff. I offered to return it, but he said no.
