Little wooden and plastic dolls that had no legs, just a round post. They fitted into their custom-made cars and chairs.
I remember I had the whole family pictured above.
The original Little People were introduced by Fisher Price in 1959 and always had the same round head and elongated, two-inch high bodies. There were several different Little People series including the Jumbo Little People, that were over three inches tall, the Construction Series (that came complete with hard hats), Woodsies (forest animals) and Chunky Little People.
