Golden Girls and more pop culture favorites get the Little People treatment • The Pop Insider
As they say in St. Olaf, big things come in small packages.
Today Mattel unveiled three new Fisher-Price Little People Collector sets (which feature popular and important characters redesigned as Little People figures): The Golden Girls, The Rolling Stones and Inspiring Women. Fans can take home adorable tiny versions of some of the big names on these sets, whether for their children’s toy chests or for their own collectible shelf.
You can almost hear the nerve – even if we assume it’s PG – of the Golden Girls set. Each of the four iconic women features vibrant colors and distinctive details. The packaging includes odes to the show with Fredrick the teddy bear in the background and popular quotes such as “Picture it.” Sicily 1912.
The Rolling Stones set celebrates the influence of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers through the decades with rock details on the packaging and figures. You can’t always get what you want, but you can get Little People from band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts, holding their respective instruments.
Young children and adults can be inspired to do great things with the Inspiring Women set. It features Little People versions of poet Maya Angelou, pilot Amelia Earhart, civil rights heroine Rosa Parks, and astronaut Sally Ride. The packaging of this set features real images of women and the words that best describe them (strong, determined, passionate, etc.).
These sets will cost $ 19.99 each. The Golden Girls set is available for purchase starting today, September 27, at major retailers, while the Rolling Stones set is available today exclusively on Amazon. The Inspiring Women set will follow, exclusively at Target on October 3. These sets join previous Little People Collectors sets inspired by Office, Elf, the Lord of the Rings, The Beatles and more.
