Back to childhood with Hasbro games’ POP
Funko takes us straight back to childhood with POPs of the most famous games from the Hasbro brand. The brand, created in 1923 by the brothers Henry and Hillel Hassenfeld (the name Hasbro comes from the contraction of Hassenfeld Brothers), has put toys in the hands of millions of children with such staples as Mr. Potato Head, GI Joe or more recently Nerf. If some of these brands already have POP figures, Funko has decided to take 5 games from the 80s and 90s to create POP figures of them.
The "Retro Toys" POPs are well named and, once again, Funko takes us back to our younger years by making 5 Hasbro must-haves into POP figures. We find the yellow Play-Doh clay box, the Trouble Board game, Lite-Brite magic screen, the Barrel of Monkeys with its little monkeys and finally the Ouija Planchette.
Each POP takes up the game, its mascot or the packaging as with the clay box, and each of the figurines instantly takes us back to these games. So it's a success!
The return to childhood is not over yet since Funko has unveiled one last Retro Toys POP in the wake of this announcement: the Polly Pocket Shell. Another memorable toy for little girls who discovered a whole universe inside this shell. In a nod to the little characters, the Shell holds in its hand a minnie version of Polly Pocket.
