G.I. Joe

Hasbro military-themed male doll toys (or, the specially coined term ‘action figure’). The line was started in 1964, after the commercial success of Barbie. The moveable doll came in army uniform, with assorted weapons and other accessories. I don’t like this at all. The presentation of the ‘army man’ as a heroic figure for boys assumes a lot of things I’m not sure I agree with. It won’t be included.
