Top 8 Fictional People that are almost as Good as Real
Whether we speak about fairies, Santa Claus, movie characters or simply mythic creatures, some of these characters are loved by the humanity for decades and centuries. We have all grow up with certain toys that made our childhoods, believed that good fairies were taking care of us during the night and kept us from those scary monsters. However, none of these characters is real but all of them are really loved by us. Here is a list of Top 8 Fictional People that are almost as Good as Real
#1. Santa Claus
Whether you believed in him or not, parents around the world are telling their kids that the white bearded lovely old man travels the world on Christmas Eve and leaves them presents while they sleep. Kids are encouraged to write a letter to Santa with whatever they desire to get as a present, and they should acknowledge their behavior during the year, because only good kids are getting their presents.
#2. Barbie doll
For over half a century, the girls around the world are playing with the lovely Barbie. The doll comes in a lot of different clothes, hair styles, shoes, houses, cars, even a younger sister, boyfriend Ken and what not. Barbie changes as time does, so you can get your little girl a Hollywood Barbie, mermaid Barbie, businesswoman Barbie etc. This doll still has the little girls’ hearts.
#3. The Marlborough Man
Before the Marlboro Man campaign began, “real men” didn’t smoke cigarettes with filters because they were for women. The aim of the Marlboro Man campaign was primarily to get men smoking filtered marlboro cigarettes. The campaign is considered to be one of the best in all history. Everybody for sure associate the Marlborough Man with the cigarette campaign.
#4. Rosie the Riveter
The symbol of strong women and girls, Rosie inspired many women afterwards to copy her style and posing. Rosie the Riveter told women that they can do anything, and they did! Rosie motivated an entire generation of working-age women to get out of the home and in to factories to help the war effort. This is probably one of the most influential events of the Second World War. This poster turned out to be one of the most famous feministic awakenings of the women. All women working in traditional male jobs have Rosie to thank.
#5. Daedalus and Icarus
The father and the son who had a dream to fly and built mechanical wings for his son Icarus and ever since the tale was told, man has lusted after the ability to take the sky and fly.. This is a long term human dream and one of the man’s greatest achievements may never have happened if it had not been for the mythological characters Daedalus and Icarus.
#6. Romeo and Juliet
Whether it was real or it was just Shakespeare’s fiction, the world still craves for such strong love as the one Romeo and Juliet had. The humanity is lead to believe that love can conquer all, make peace to families and even make you die for the person you love. Although the truth is a bit different taking the fact (if it can be called fact) that Romeo was between 16-18 years old and Juliet was only 14 and they knew each other for day before they got married. World rarely functions that way, but the story exists to set high ideals among people who are seeking love.
#7. Big Brother
Big Brother or the grand spy who observes the entire world. His name comes up every time a government passes a restrictive law or a law which seems to remove aspects of our eternal freedoms. Everyone recognizes his face, knows what he stands for, and everyone is terrified of the potential for our own lives to be governed by our own version of the fictional character. Big Brother (for those who have never read “1984”) was created by the writer George Orwell.
#8. Mickey Mouse
The Disney’s anthropomorphic mouse who owned a dog and is one of the most wanted characters in the Disneyland parks around the world for sure is another character the human kind knows and appreciates. His unique high pitched voice together with the large black ears became his trade mark. If you ever go or have been to the Disneyland amusement park you probably got a pair of Mickey ears as a souvenir. The pop culture also loves him, using his face as clothing print, toys, songs, inside decoration and so on.
