Fisher-Price favourite: Little People!

After a couple of years of working with and talking about Fisher-Price toys, it’s clear that while they have a diverse lineup of products and toys the one that most resonates with people is the Little People line. We had them as kids, and I’m sure you did, too! It’s funny to watch peoples’ faces as they wax nostalgic about their Sesame Street Little People set, or the original garage with the bell that dinged, or the McDonalds Little People set.

It was timely that my friend Kerry shared last week this blog post about the history and evolution of Little People because Fisher-Price has just announced a new set of five Little People characters.

Today’s Little People are infused with character traits. Sofie is a curious daydreamer who likes to paint while Eddie is an energetic lover of sports. Koby is the jester, Mia is more shy and quiet, and Tessa is a dancer who loves to twirl. You’ll be able to introduce all the new characters to your little ones through a new series this fall on Treehouse TV, and you can “meet” all the Little People friends here. Or, if you’re lucky, you can meet them on a beach in Mexico! šŸ˜‰

(Sigh, already a year ago….)

So here’s what I’m wondering. Do you like the fact that Fisher-Price has put so much effort into creating personalities and a diverse line of Little People that are more like action figures? Do you think this helps kids learn about and become more appreciative of differences and that they’ll identify with the character most like themselves? Or do you prefer the blank canvas of the round-headed, non-descript original Little People?
