For the generation that always wanted to have a neighbor just like Mister Rogers, Funko Pop is giving us the next best thing! In honor of the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Funko Pop! will release the sweetest Mister Rogers vinyl figure and other collectable items this summer.
As a child of the ’70s who grew up watching the show and had the privilege of meeting Fred Rogers when I was 6 years old, this latest Funko Pop! news is giving me such a good feeling, a very good feeling!
Rogers was the kindest, sweetest person and we could all use a little more Mister Rogers kindness these days.
Funko will offer several vinyl figures, each featuring Mister Rogers wearing a different color cardigan and holding a special character, like Neighborhood Trolley — who took viewers to the magical neighborhood of Make-Believe each episode — or King Friday XIII, the ruler of Make-Believe.
