Little People Turns 50!

02/24/2009 at 01:15 PM ET

My Little People houses and castle were among my most treasured toys so I’m excited that they are celebrating their 50th birthday this year! In January, Fisher-Price introduced four commemorative sets that will bring you back to your childhood: Play ‘n Go Farm, Play ‘n Go School, Play ‘n Go Fire Station (available exclusively at Toys R Us) and Play ‘n Go Home (available exclusively at Target). The sets retail for $14-18.

All include a collectible take-along storage tin that holds the retro-styled figures. You can purchase additional sets of retro figures for $7. I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll reintroduce my beloved Castle that my mother donated to a nursery school without asking me that is now available on eBay for $200!

Fisher-Price also introduced four new modern playsets- check out our review. For a real trip down memory lane, visit This Old Toy’s guide to the original Little People.

Oh, do those toys bring back memories. My two daughters, now 31 and 32, had the Farm and the Doll House. I enjoyed playing with those toys, too. May they be made forever!!!
