FUNKO POPSIES POP-UP IN BOTH THE DC AND MARVEL UNIVERSE

Wonder Woman PopsieAt the end of 2021, Funko (the company, not the crass sound effect), announced that they were going to add a brand new product to their current range of consumables. But this time, instead of them manufacturing another adorable vinyl figure or bodacious board game, they chose to venture into the wonderful world of greeting cards by developing something they like to call, 'Popsies'.

So what are Popsies? In essence, Popsies are a series of interactive greeting cards that take the form of cute, action figures, based on a variety of different characters seen in popular culture. On average, each one measures 4.75” (height), 3” (width), and 2” (depth), and they're made from a durable, vinyl plastic.

How do you write a message on these interactive greeting cards? Well, in many ways, you don't. Not directly, anyway, because even though there's a place at the side of each Popsie to write the sender and the recipient's name (mainly, who's it from and who's it to), the actual message is conveyed when a button on the base is pressed, which prompts the character to reveal it via a pop-up speech bubble (see images provided for a quick demonstration).


DC POP


What characters have been announced so far? At the moment, Funko has designed and produced a long list of Popsies based on characters featured in several popular franchises, including, Ghostbusters (Stay Puft), DC Comics (Batman, Wonder Woman, Joker, and Harley Quinn), Marvel Comics (Spider-Man, Thanos, and Iron Man), Disney (Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and Stitch), and Five Nights at Freddy's (Freddy, Freddy Gold, and Foxy). They've also produced Popsies based on characters featured in the Harry Potter franchise, the Peanuts cartoon, The Office TV show, movies developed by Pixar, and many, many, more.
