If you're in the market for an action figure based on a real person, you've got plenty to choose from: Everyone from Snoop Dogg to the Pope is getting their own figurine these days. Now, Frida Kahlo has joined the ranks of icons who have become immortalized in plastic.

In 2017, Canadian art website Today Is Art Day (known for its Vincent van Gogh action figure) started a Kickstarter to give Kahlo the action figure treatment. The toy features the artist with a monkey pal on her shoulder, as well as a detachable heart and the faint smell of roses. The packaging has fun facts about the artist, along with some miniature artwork that can be cut out and affixed to a miniature easel.

“Not that I don’t like the great books and reproductions of artworks but, I think it’s more engaging to have a Frida Kahlo action figure on your desk rather than an art history book on your shelf," ‘Today Is Art Day’ founder David Beaulieu told Lost at E Minor during the Kickstarter campaign.

The Frida action figure is available on Amazon for $30.

There are plenty of products that let you show off your Harry Potter fandom, but few are as adorable as this new line of bags from JuJuBe. As Red Tricycle reports, the retailer's Harry Potter Cheering Charms collection features accessories branded with cute, cartoon versions of your favorite characters from the book series.

The biggest stars from J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World are represented on the bags, including Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Minor characters—such as Luna Lovegood, Severus Snape, Sirius Black, and Fred and George Weasley—are also included in the pattern. The characters are printed on the outside of the products on a black background with gold sparks. Inside, the bags are lined with red and gold stripes—the house colors of Gryffindor.

Whatever you're looking for, there's a Harry Potter bag to fit your needs. JuJuBe offer various styles, ranging from larger backpacks and duffel bags to small purses and ear pod cases. The store even sells diaper bags for parents raising future Harry Potter fans.
