East Aurora’s Fisher Price Releases ‘The Office’ Little People
East Aurora is roughly 240 miles away from Scranton, but the cast of "The Office" imagined as Little People could be making their way to your desk soon.
The set features Dwight, Jim, Pam, and of course, Michael Scott. According to TVWeb, the figures have a shipping date set for mid-July. Little Person Michael Scott even has a perfectly proportioned little World's Best Boss mug.
Fisher Price's Little People first debuted in 1959, according to the National Toy Hall of Fame, located in nearby Rochester NY. The toys were inducted in 2016.
The toymaker recently announced a new line of collectables honoring the "everyday heroes" of the coronavirus pandemic. The Everyday Heroes collection features a doctor, nurse, EMT, delivery driver and grocery store worker.
Fisher Price has also gotten into manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), making face masks out of fabric used for infant toys and Barbies.
Fisher Price, and its parent company Mattel are "prototyping personal protective equipment such as face shields, with guidance from healthcare professionals," according to an article in the Buffalo News.
