Shop Famous Figures

Creative history for the classical child! Each Famous Figures set presents historical figures from a specific era – kings, generals, philosophers, religious leaders, and scholars – in both pre-colored and color-them-in versions, to cut out and assemble into moveable action figures. From ancient to early modern times, from Hannibal to Mary, Queen of Scots, explore the possibilities. A brief biographical note on each figure is included, along with a list of related books to read. 

Enjoy the show as your children act out the history they’ve been reading, or even create new stories and scenarios. Reenact how Theodora went from a circus clown to Empress of the Byzantine Empire, or mix sets and introduce Alexander the Great to Catherine the Great. We provide the movable paper figures, you provide the imagination.
