Who could forget Fisher-Price's Little People? Our favorite has always been the blond with the ponytail and great smile. (She reminded us of Betty from Betty & Veronica). In the same year Barbie turned 50, so are Little People and they are celebrating with a bang.
Fisher-Price has a great interactive Web site up which illustrates the history of the Little People toy line from 1950's to today. And they will continue their celebration through the summer as a Little People live musical is making its way across the country to local zoos including the San Diego Zoo, Atlanta Zoo and Brookfield Zoo.
While they aren't re-releasing original play sets, Fisher-Price is introducing updated versions of many of the classics including the Play n' Go School, Play n' Go Farm, Play n' Go Home and Play n' Go Fire Station.
