  1. I acquired a mr. potato head funny-face kit and was trying to determine what age it is. There is no copyright on any of the box parts, booklet or potato parts. A total of 24 parts including the body + the styrofoam head. missing glasses and i believe a mustache eyebrows and not sure what else. There is no printing on the box bottom and the box is numbered NO. 2000. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
