TV Commercials from the 40s, 50s, & Early 60s
1952: Mr. Potato Head


In 1952, Mr. Potato Head earned the distinction of becoming the first toy ever advertised on television. Unlike the all-plastic version that would appear in the 1960s, this version was just a kit. A kid lucky enough to score one had to stick the facial features into an actual potato.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK

We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

 So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
