Are you still thinking about Christmas gifts? Did none of my #lovelocal presents do it for you (who are you even?)? Maybe one of these Funko guys will be more your style.

Funko’s are, in a word, figurines – but they are so much more than that. They are cute, funky, adorable, awesome. They are collector’s items – collectibles, if you will. 

The cool thing about them is you can basically find a figurine of your favourite character in a Funko, no matter if you are a 10-year old obsessed with Mary Poppins , a 35-year old who’s a die-hard Star Wars fan, or a Stranger Things watcher. 

Then there are Avengers, Spongebob Squarepants, the Grinch, Home Alone, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, the Incredibles and of course, all your favourite Disney characters and superheroes. Basically anything you can think of. Even Mariah Carey. 

Which means they make a great gift for anybody!

If you’re looking for a Christmas present for that person you never know what to get for, maybe a Funko Pop is exactly what they need. They also make great stocking fillers.

Funko products are available in SA from from BT Games, Cardies, Hamleys, Incredible Connection, Musica, Toy Kingdom, Toys R Us,  and Vodacom stores.  They are also available online on and
