New Peanuts Christmas items at Toys R Us...
Forever Fun, a company which has changed its name multiple times in the last five years has a new assortment of Peanuts toys and accessories for this Holiday season. Every year they offer a nice batch of poseable figures, mini figures and Christmas tree ornaments celebrating the classic Christmas special featuring good old Charlie Brown and Company.
This year the assortment of poseable figures is back with new accessories as well as a new build a tree promo which basically steals the idea of DC Classics' buid-a-figure line by having each figure come with a bonus piece which once put together makes a big Christmas tree.
This year's mini figures set focuses on the Christmas pageant nativity scene. Two new play packs featuring poseable figures of Linus & Sally and Lucy and Charlie also focus on the nativity scene by including the characters dressed up and accessorized as Mary, Joseph, Angels, and baby Jesus (Woodstock). Also in this year's assortment we get a couple of deluxe scale figures featuring snoopy as a snowboarder and Charlie Brown with new Holiday inspired accessories such as a giant candy cane and boxed Christmas gift.
The Peanuts decorative blocks from last year are back in two different sets of 5 or 9 blocks. I always wait 'till after Christmas day to pick these figures up since Toys 'R Us marks them down drastically starting on December 26. These have become a Holiday tradition at our home as we put together a different scene featuring Charlie Brown or the Rankin Bass gang under our tree every year.
K-Mart stores also have some exclusives from A Charlie Brown Christmas this year also from Forever Fun. I'll share some pics of those as soon as I make my way to my local K-Mart.
