Yes, that is right, Rudolph has been around for 50 years. He first appeared on the animated Christmas t.v. special on December 6, 1964 and has gone on to become more and more popular every year since then.
Each of the four figures in this set speaks four phrases and plays a song. For instance, when you press Santa Claus' belt buckle, he responds with:
"Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!"
"First stop: "The Island of Misfit Toys!"
"Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!" or
"Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"
Santa also sings, "Jingle Jingle Jingle, I Am Old Kris Kringle."
I think one of these toys would make a terrific gift if you are looking for an inexpensive, Christmas-themed gift idea but the whole set would be fun to collect and either display or play with every year at Christmastime. You can check them all out on Amazon by clicking right here.
