Don’t you want to be this little guy’s neighbor? In honor of the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Funko is inducting the lovable children’s TV star into its line of Pop! figures.
Never without a sweater and trolley car, the just over 3-inch-tall collectible will be available nationwide this summer as part of a Funko collection of goodies.
“Fifty years ago, Fred Rogers began leaving his indelible mark on young audiences through his pioneering show, and today, we’re honored to celebrate his legacy with a year full of special activities for fans of all ages,” Paul Siefken, president and CEO of The Fred Rogers Company, said in a statement. “The enduring affection that so many of us have for Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood underscores Fred’s truly timeless wisdom, which is just as important and relevant today as it was half a century ago.”
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood premiered on Feb. 19, 1968, and this toy is just one of a whole lineup of events and items coming your way.
