Throw on The Jackson 5 Christmas Album & Welcome Funko's Holiday Dancing Groot!

Written by

By now, the Dancing Baby Groot from the end of MARVEL's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is a familiar, if not iconic fixture for even those who haven't seen the movie. Here at our house, The Rock Daughters even associate the little guy with The Jackson 5, breaking into that "Groot dance" whenever they hear "I Want You Back." I also have the Funko Pop! Vinyl Dancing Groot here in my office, and they always want to play with him. Now, with the holiday season fast-approaching, Funko is releasing a special edition Pop! Vinyl that brings it all together... Holiday Dancing Groot

Holiday Dancing Groot - Entertainment Earth

"What happens when Groot goes a little overboard with that eggnog? Bobbling ensues and he's in the spirit to wish you a Happy Holidays! This totally adorable Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Dancing Groot Pop! Figure comes to you in a festive green flower pot and large red bow. Holiday Dancing Groot features classic bobble head action with a spring, so you can make baby Groot "dance" along to all your holiday tunes. No batteries required! The Holiday Dancing Groot Pop! Vinyl Bobble Head Figure is an essential addition to any Guardians of the Galaxy fan's collection. Ages 3 and up."

Available for pre-order now through my friends at Entertainment Earth, I can picture putting on the 1970 JACKSON 5 CHRISTMAS ALBUM to watch the kids groove to "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" while they pretend that Groot is getting down to the jam himself.
