Every parent knows that when it comes to the toy section in a store: they shall not pass. Soon that won’t be such a bad thing for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien and Will Ferrell. Fisher-Price‘s newest additions to their Little People Collectors line celebrates two movies loved by viewers of all ages. And whether you want them for a shelf in your home office or as a gift for your kids, you can form a fellowship and remember a holiday classic with new The Lord of the Rings and Elf character playsets.
Fisher-Price’s Little People collector line is adding two new sets to its lineup. The first is a special-edition, six-figure Lord of The Rings collection ($29.99), featuring the group that made up the Fellowship of the Ring. There’s Frodo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. The sixth figure is a bonus Lady Arwen. And while this might be a kid’s toy, it will definitely appeal to fans of Peter Jackson’s movies. The company said that throughout the development process its “designers made sure to incorporate the unique character details fans will appreciate, including Frodo’s feet and Gandalf’s wooden staff.”
And yes, Gimli’s axe. You can’t have a fellowship without his axe.
The other new set is a special Elf collection ($14.99). Based on Jon Favreau’s holiday classic, it comes with a “holly jolly Christmas tree” and two figures, Will Ferrell’s Buddy (holding maple syrup) and Zooey Deschanel’s Jovie. The set also comes in a snow globe package with cut-out snowflakes. They were inspired by the paper snowflakes Buddy made in the movie to decorate for his favorite holiday.
Both sets are safe enough for children ages one and up. They will be available this fall.
Of course, if you’re a parent you might want to get two of each. Sure, it’s great if your kids are playing with toys that will foster their love of iconic stories. But these are cool enough to keep on your grown-up shelf too.
