Because really, aren’t we all Wonder Woman?

I was at work when Beloved called with urgent news. “Did you see there’s a Fisher-Price Little People Batcave now?” he asked, excitement clear in his voice.

“What?” I asked, not sure I’d heard correctly. Sure enough, I looked it up on the Fisher-Price website and there it was — Batman and the Batcave , Robin, the Batmobile, and also Superman and Green Lantern, Batgirl and Wonder Woman. And because all superheroes need a nemesis, there’s a Joker Little People (person?) as well. And they even have — wait for it! — Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. How awesome is THAT?! Apparently there’s a full line of DC Superfriends Little People. Clearly, this is the coolest Little People set since the Sesame Street of the 1970s.

So impressed was I to find a line of toys so perfect for a Fisher-Price blogger and a long-time comic book geek (erm, I mean, for the CHILDREN of, of course, yeah, for the kids, absolutely!) that I took to the interwebs to share my discovery. And I sent a quick e-mail to my friends at Mom Central Canada and Fisher-Price telling them how much we loved the idea of the DC Superfriends Little People, and I asked if maybe a couple of the figures could make their way to our house in a future toy shipment (which they send a few times a year as part of my blogging for them) for which we would be ever so grateful.

Imagine my delight when just a few days later — the day before Lucas’s birthday, in fact! — a large carton appeared on the porch. Inside was the FULL SET of DC Superfriends Little People AND the Batcave AND the Batmobile too!

And if you think *I* was delighted, you should’ve seen Beloved and Lucas!! (Sorry for the grainy pix. As Chase Jarvis says, sometimes the best camera is the one you have in your hand.)

But while the Batcave and Batmobile were undoubtedly wicked cool, it’s been a long time since I’ve been as excited about a toy as I was for Wonder Woman and her invisible jet!!

Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet

As one cheeky follower on twitter quipped, the only thing that would make that more awesome would be if Wonder Woman was driving an invisible mini-van. ๐Ÿ™‚

In addition to the Little People figures and action sets, Fisher-Price has also come out with a full set of DC Superfriends Wheelies. You might think the Wheelies are just for the littlest of boys (and they are perfect for little hands to hold and drive), but all three of my boys enjoy setting them up to race down the tracks. Such a simple, fun toy!

So you know I’m partial to Fisher-Price. I’ve made no secret of that in the year I’ve been blogging with them, and I’ve raved a lot about some of their products with good reason. But this? I would have raved about how much I love the idea of Little People superheroes whether I was working with Fisher-Price or not. I love love love the whole set.

And more importantly, so do all the menfolk in my house!

The only problem is letting the kids play with the sets. I kinda want to keep Wonder Woman and her jet in a place of honour on my desk, and Beloved is talking about building a whole new shelf just to house Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Batgirl, Robin, the Joker and all their accessories.

You know how it is. Sometimes it’s hard to share.
