PopBoxZA Review: Mary Poppins with kite

Reviewed by on

As the crown jewel in Disney’s crown Mary Poppins a classic of note. Fifty-four years later she returned with the release, late last year, of Mary Poppins Returns.

With the incandescent Emily Blunt in the starring role the film is utterly charming in every way. Read the review here.

It goes without saying that Funko would jump on board the Mary Poppins train and produce a wave Pops featuring the world’s most famous nanny.

Mary Poppins with kite

This is likely the pop that attempts to capture the most iconic moment in the film: the arrival of Mary Poppins.

Upon first inspection the Pop hits all the right notes – it includes the famous carpetbag and Mary Poppins is clutching the kite that she flies in on. However, when more closely scrutinized the Pop lacks a bit of detail in comparison to the movie version. For one, the coat is black and blue in the film while the Pop is solid navy blue. Funko did ensure that the red scarf is adorned with black polka dots but did forego the silver accents on the buckle and buttons of the coat.

While these smaller lapses in attention to detail could be overlooked what cannot be so easily dismissed is the fact that this Pop does not include the umbrella. Although Funko isn’t in the business of making exact replicas they have chosen to recreate what is likely the most iconic scene of the film and, therefore, should’ve gotten it spot on.

I do also wish they would have angled the feet slightly outward as a nod to the famous Mary Poppins pose.

Overall, the Mary Poppins Returns wave of Funko Pops is rather a letdown due to its lack of detail and puzzling choices [insert incorrect hair colour]. In conclusion, if you were interested in this wave it would be my advice to wait until they go on sale.
