The Simpsons (World of Springfield) > Playmates

The Simpsons had been on the air for about 10 seasons with over one hundred characters introduced throughout the running of the show when the World of Springfield line made its debut from Playmates. America’s animated first-family had a toy line released by Mattel in 1990, and due to low sales, Mattel cancelled series 2. After a decade of no mass marketed toys on the shelves, Playmates Toys entered the picture.

Up to that point, Playmates Toys was known to collectors as the long-running manufacturer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Looking for another hit, Playmates acquired the license for The Simpsons at the end of 1999 and debuted figures for the first two series at Toy Fair 2000.

Unlike other toy lines based off TV shows, they wanted to create not only an assortment of figures but different parts of the iconic city of Springfield for the figures to interact with. By the end of its run, The Simpsons’ World of Springfield line encompassed over 200 different figures, hundreds of Simpsons inspired accessories, and nearly forty environments.
