The cult American rock band the Rolling Stones has finally caught the interest of toy maker Fisher Price.
Miniature figurines of legendary musicians led by Mick Jagger appeared in the Little People collection.
The company believes that the People Collector Rolling Stones Special Edition will be equally attractive to both children and representatives of the boomer generation.
On the packaging of the publication it is indicated that the figures are intended for buyers aged from 1 to 101 years. The set went on sale in retail chains and online stores for a suggested price of $20.
The release of the toys for sale was officially timed to coincide with the start of the cult rock band's last tour of the United States, which kicked off on September 26 in St. Louis.
The set includes miniature figures of vocalist Mick Jagger with signature lips and tongue on a T-shirt, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Jones, and drummer Charlie Watts, who died this summer. At the same time, former band members guitarist Brian Jones and bassist Bill Wyman were not included in the playing set.
Fisher Price notes that although the figurines are static and "non-singing," for Rolling Stones fans, this is more than just a game. It is expected that thousands of fans of the band will thus be able to add to their collections of memorabilia, while for their children it will be a pleasant gift with the opportunity to learn about the history of music.
The Little People collection series from Ficher Price includes several generations of toys, although the company has begun replicating figures with world celebrities relatively recently. Characters already featured in the series include Elvis Presley, hip-hop pioneers Run DMC, and characters from the movie Freeze and the television series The Office.
