Like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Rankin and
Bass and Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, we grew up with
Maurice Sendak's timeless tale of a wild young boy who explores
a wild land filled with the creatures in his mind.
The charming tale's characters are faithfully reproduced
by the crafty hands at McFarlane Toys. Written in 1963, Where
the Wild Things Are won the Caldecott Medal in 1964. In
1970, Sendak won the Hans Christian Anderson Award - the first
for an American illustrator.
McFarlane Toys worked with Sendak to recreate the cast from
the story, including the little boy, Moishe, Aaron, Emile
and others.When you find these, you'll be amazed with the
quality. Even setting high standerds in the market, McFarlane
has managed to take things up a notch. Not only did they nail
the volume and size of each character, but their coloration
and the visual texture that Sendak used to create his story.
