One thing that’s surprising with the success of Guardians of the Galaxy is that it’s taken Marvel so long to get an officially licensed dancing Groot toy to the market. We’ve seen a Funko Pop! Vinyl bobble head, and there are tons of bootlegs floating around out there, but Marvel hasn’t taken the toy “dancing flower” concept with the license…until now.
Mashable got the exclusive on the first officially licensed dancing Groot:
From Marvel Entertainment and KIDdesigns, the wiggly little guy will run about $14.99 and plays an electronic version of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” from a built-in speaker.
He’ll be on shelves in December, on fireplace mantles on Dec. 25, and prominently displayed in an office cubicle knick-knack collection near you before the snow melts.
You can check out a video of the toy below:
