Besides Barbie, there’s another toy celebrating their 50th Anniversary in the toy business that’s still a top seller; Fisher Price’s Little People.
Little People are a “simple toy” that has spurned children to be creative in play and use their imaginations. It all started with a Fire Truck, but when I think Little People, I think of the School Bus, the old wooden figures with the round heads. Little People expanded through the years into poseable figures, adding sounds, and taking children’s imaginative play even further. It’s amazing to see a simple concept stand the test of time, yet still be significant in today’s world of play.
Fisher Price will be celebrating this commemorative anniversary with a live musical traveling show.
