Instagram Roundup: Fisher-Price Little People

Instagram Roundup

Welcome to the first of a new series here on Top Hat Sasquatch; Instagram Roundups. Most of us here on the ‘squatch are big Instagram fans. I’ve been using it literally since the first day it was available in the App Store, and I love it. It has a huge community (10 million users in less than a year), and an endless supply of photos tagged with anything you can imagine.

Today I was digging around in a box and found my old Fisher Price Little People Dog and snapped a photo and put it on Instagram. I tagged it, and suddenly had the urge to browse through other Little People photos, since those toys are such a big part of my nostalgia. Below is a roundup of some favorites (and the photo of my Dog).

We’ll be posting Instagram Roundups every so often, and if you have a suggestion for a topic let us know in the comments, and you can always tag your photos #TopHatSasquatch to get our attention.

Cool Stuff: Geeky Peg People

Ghostbusters Peg People

I bet a lot of you played with Fisher Price Little People when you were tiny. They’ve been around for decades, and even thought they were plastic by the time I played with them, I always loved the older, wooden Little People.

That’s the vibe I get from RandomlyGenerated’s Etsy store, although instead of dogs, cowboys, and generic folks, the peg people are characters from our favorite pieces of geek culture. The Ghostbusters are definitely my favorite, although there aren’t any TMNT Peg People on there yet so that could change.

Check out the rest after the jump.
