Got this as my trivia of the day. What was the first toy to air on television?
The answer: The first toy advertised on television was Mr. Potato Head. Introduced in 1952, it grossed $4 million in his very first year. The original Mr. Potato Head was a collection of parts with which children would use real potatoes to make countless faces. It was eight years before the plastic potato body was included.
