Remember the good old days of Pawnee, where waffles, government conspiracies, and Lil’ Sebastian ruled supreme? Well, now you can relive those memories with the new Fisher-Price Little People Collector Set based on the beloved NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.
Parks and Recreation Little People Collector Set
A collaboration between toymaker Fisher-Price and NBCUniversal, the Parks and Recreation Little People Collector features four figurines in the likeness of the fan-favorite characters from the show, namely Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) and Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt).
Ron Swanson wears his iconic red long-sleeve shirt, while the always professional Leslie Knope rocks a light blue power pantsuit with her campaign pin proudly on display. April Ludgate, meanwhile, looks comfy in her floral shirt topped with a green cardigan. Lastly, Andy Dwyer embraces his days as a shoe shiner wearing his classic flannel and jeans combo with his shoeshine apron.
Each figurine stands just under 3 inches and all come in packaging filled with tons of Easter eggs. On the front of the packaging, you can see a raccoon peeking through the window. On Leslie’s desk, there’s a picture of the Pawnee icon, Lil’ Sebastian. A fast-food bag from Paunch Burger, a favorite food for the town, can also be seen. And on the wall, you will find a “Sweetums” poster, Pawnee’s leading sweet treat manufacturer for over 80 years.
Meanwhile, on the back of the packaging, you can see Andy and April with their wedding rings on. There’s also a wanted pest poster, as the crew continues to search for pesky raccoons. Pawnee’s Sickest Nightclub is not forgotten, as a Snakehole Lounge poster can also be seen behind April. Speaking of posters, Leslie’s campaign poster is also displayed in all its glory. Also seen on the back of the packaging is a box of peppers, pumpkins, and leaves, with a poster for the highly anticipated Chili Cook-Off. Lil’ Sebastian is featured once again on the cover of a newspaper with the headline, Little Horse Is Big Deal.

What is Parks and Recreation about?
Created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation stars Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, a perky, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana. The series starts with Leslie hoping to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping a local nurse turn an abandoned construction site into a community park, but what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape and a myriad of other challenges.
