There is a serious injustice happening right now in the Toy industry. I’m not talking about how we’ve strayed from making toys indestructible (have you ever tried to break a Lincoln Log?), or how craftsmanship is a thing of the past. Nor am I talking about how most toys now-a-days have some kind of mechanical battery operated mechanism which leaves nothing left for imagination. No – the injustice I speak of is something that’s always been there, yet I’m so damn fed up with it – and that’s gederfication and blatant sexism in the toy industry.
FINALLY! GIRL POWER! I am so excited for this news! If you haven’t heard, coming in the Fall of 2015, Mattel, DC, and WB are teaming up to launch content and merchandise aimed at girls! YO! Awesome! What’s even better is that the line features products ranging from action figures to tv specials developed for girls aged 6-12, and will center around female super heroes and super villains. Some of the characters to be included are Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, and Katana. COOL!
