Mrs Potato Head

LORELAI: Fine, I’ll just use the Mrs. Potato Head lips [on the snow woman].

Mr Potato Head is a toy consisting of a plastic potato “head”, to which you can attach a variety of body parts, such as eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. First manufactured by Hasbro in 1952, it was the first toy to be advertised on television. Mrs Potato Head was added in 1953, with Brother Spud and Sister Yam soon following.

Mr and Mrs Potato Head joined the Toy Story franchise in 1995, and Mr Potato Head got his own short-lived television show in 1998. They have lent themselves to several advertising campaigns and become spokespeople for various causes, such as giving up smoking, getting fit, and women voters.

Lorelai apparently has some Mrs Potato Head lips to use as a backup, but doesn’t get the chance to try them as the snow woman’s head unfortunately falls off.
