Particularly huge dinobots ” yeah. 🙂
So Hasbro why no “girl” transformers? Pretty sexist. Girls get rainbows?
There was one female character announced. I didn’t catch the character name, but it’s on Ricky’s Twitter.
But yeah, that annoyed me too. The executives even said that the tree stages of Transformes fan (as branded) are, “PreSchool,” “Boy,” and “Fan.” Seems like they could have just called the middle stage “child,” or something similar instead.
Personally when I was a kid I did not car if my transformers toys were considered boys or girls, I jost love that they looked sooo cool!. I was always the girl that would prefer the boys toys over the girls. But dang I wish they had had these my little poinies, monster high, and disney stuff when I was a kid.
I understand. But it would be nice if the company acknowledged the fact that all genders enjoy them. By actually branding them “Boy,” I kinda feel like they discourage girls from playing with them, or ignoring those girls entirely. To a child, the subtext is, “go away. We don’t want you here.”
(Speaking as someone who’s worked at a Montessori preschool and as a girl who actually decided not to play with things she liked because she felt like the brand didn’t want her to.)
Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share
it with someone!
