>>103678202>Its the same reason why Harely quinn never got any action figures when she was first introduced or why black widow was on almost none of the marvel merch:>Execs only think you can sell dolls to girls. They've convinced themselves that only dolls sell to girls. Which is absolutely retarded because Ive been into a hot topic and the little bullshit disney trinkets sell like fucking hot cakes. I dont even really like disney princesses but I happened to walk into a store that had a mulan necklace with a sword on it and I bought the shit out of it along with a sweet ass perfume bottle that looks like the apple from snow white.
And disney really is the worst about this. When it comes time to make the merch, they gender it all. And if they gender it female or if they gender it male, the other gender gets the shaft.
It doesn't matter if Frozen was enjoyed by men and women, all the toys are marketed to girls. How long was the movie out before they any figures of Marshmallow? And you have to like get them from the disney store (fi they have them). I had to buy one from the huge store in Orlando if I didn't want to pay ebay scalping prices.
Kim Possible was the same way. It didn't matter if boys and girls watched the show. Disney decided it was for girls. So nothing but dolls. I'd love to have had a figure of Drakken and Shego, but no fuck my stupid ass.
And the Buzz light year figures, they never put out a Mira Nova because it was aimed at boys.
Whomever Disney has over their merch is god damn infuriating.
