Mashed Potatoes

SOME TOYS DON'T NEED TO BE TWEAKED WITH technology. But try telling that to Hasbro Interactive, which has shoveled such traditional toy-chest favorites as jigsaw puzzles, Mr. Potato Head and Play-Doh onto Fun Pack 3 ($19.95; 800-638-6927). In its digital incarnations, Mr. Potato Head has lost his bulbous 3-D bod, and the squishiness has been squeezed out of Play-Doh. That's not progress. Sure, no plastic potato parts will get lost in the couch, and clay won't litter the carpet. But for most kids, no mess equals no fun.
