Holiday 2011 Gift Idea: DC Super Hero/Fisher-Price Little People
Fisher Price's Little People line of toys have been a toddler/pre-schooler favorite for decades now. I used to play with my little Sesame Street Little People playset quite a bit for those early years of my life. Back in the 70's Little People were small wooden/plastic peg people, today they are a bit larger (I'm guessing less of a choking hazard), plastic, and more detailed in their sculpt.
As a father of two I get all the toy catalogs around this time of year. While the Lego catalog had me and my son drooling over new construction sets, it was the Fisher-Price catalog that got my attention with their new line of DC Super-Friends Little People including playsets. Fisher-Price as long held the DC Hero license for kids toys, using them in their Hero World toy sets where super-heroes are side by side with heroic firefighters, soldiers and police officers. But these Little People are a new and unexpected surprise. It's going to be tough resisting the urge to buy my 16 month old daughter the Batgirl/Wonder Woman Duo Figure Pack at the very least. This is a great start to the line, all of which are available only directly via Target Stores or online from Fisher-Price, other dealers are selling them but they will probably be at inflated prices.
