To celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Funko has revealed an adorable Mister Rogers Pop! figure and SuperCute Plush.
The kind-hearted Mister Rogers always had one question for his audience: “Won’t you be my neighbor?” The 3-inch collectible Funko Pop! figure depicts the beloved personality with his iconic cardigan and trolley car, while the SuperCute Plush offers another sweet way to bring Mister Rogers to your neighborhood.
Both the Funko Pop! figure and the SuperCute Plush become available this summer.
