Merry Mushrooms were the brainchild of Jack Buchanan, the Sears Housewares Buyer in the 1970s. In 2013, Jack published a LifeBio booklet, Sears, A True Fairy Tale, about the creation, rise, fall, and rediscovery of Merry Mushrooms. Copies of the booklet are often available on eBay, usually listed as "Sears Merry Mushroom Storybook" and sold by Jack's son, John.
In 2014, Jack himself presented his story at what appears to a LifeBio program at a local library. He was accompanied by some Merry Mushrooms canisters and miniatures. Jack is in now his nineties and still loves talking about Merry Mushrooms!
