Fisher Price Little People have certainly evolved over the years. When we were tots, the people were simple pegs with a round head attached to them. No arms, no legs and definite choking hazards by today's standards.
Later this week, Little People will celebrate their 50th anniversary (just like a certain doll that we know) and Fisher Price is celebrating by releasing four limited-edition anniversary playsets. The Little People 50th Birthday Play 'n' Go School, Play 'n' Go Farm, Play 'n' Go Home and Play 'n' Go Fire Station ($18 each) look just like their original models from the peg-shaped people to the handles located on top of each set, but meet current safety laws. Toys R Us locations throughout the country will also be hosting birthday parties for the Little People on Saturday, March 21, so be sure to check with your local store about their planned festivities.
