Let Your Kid Channelise the Inner Action Spirit in Him/Her with Toy Guns
When Barbie dolls were first introduced in , little girls snatched them up in droves. For the first time, midcentury kids could play with a doll that looked like a woman, not a little girl—a doll with a sassy ponytail, heavy eyeliner, a healthy dose of side-eye, and a distinctly adult body.

Their chem facilities are restricted to being resourceful with well-known, kid-safe materials like Slime, Barbie hair dyes, and tubes of wax that melt into miniature cars—not for developing newly-synthesized nanomaterials like Gortex or Teflon. So the team got to work mixing various polymers and setting them in golf ball like molds, thinking the large perforations might compress and cause a plunger effect when they hit a solid surface. Now Derman wanted to pursue ideas of his own. And Mattel had finally given him a skeleton crew to devise a completely open-ended toy line of his devising.
