Well, I am not usually a big fan of “characters,” but have to admit that Mrs Potato Head was cute. As a child, we knew the two main characters, Mr, and Mrs. Potato Head, and used the various pieces to decorate all sorts of things....More

The airport staff were all very friendly! Mrs. Potato head was adorable! We had older (ok adult) children with us and they loved the statue. It's a nice break from driving.

Not something I would go to Westerly for but since I was in the area, why not. Out the back door of the airport. Cute idea!!!

A lot of people in the area don't even know that Mrs. Potatohead is hiding at the airport. The two times I've stopped in to see it, the airport staff seemed surprised (and almost suspicious) that I wanted to get a photo of it. It...More
