Adult Swim Sept 2007 Robot Chicken captures the joy of playing with your toys.

Emperor Palpatine sits in his office, feet on his desk, telling his how-I-whupped-Yoda's-ass-in-the-Senate story (again) to a couple of cronies. The phone rings. It's Darth Vader — calling collect. 'Vader! How's my favorite Sith?' Then, after listening for a few beats, the prune-faced politician slams a tiny plastic fist on his desk in rage. 'Whaddya mean they blew up the Death Star?' He unleashes a flurry of V-chipped expletives. 'That thing wasn't even fully paid off yet! Do you have any idea what this is going to do to my credit?' The conversation ends with a sheepish Palpatine grumbling, 'I love you, too,' before hanging up the phone.
That scene is just one nugget of , the Adult Swim network's hit series that's about as far, far away from mainstream TV as you can get. The show's 15-minute episodes are packed with silly superhero riffs and abundant fart jokes acted out by posable action figures. Yet since its debut in 2005, has helped the cable channel set ratings records and has enjoyed brisk DVD sales. When the Palpatine snippet found its way onto YouTube last year, it generated more than a million views, creating a flock of new fans — and eventually hatching a 30-minute TV special.
So, what's the secret sauce in , a zesty hodgepodge of pop-culture in-jokes that took its name from a Chinese take-out dish? After all, parodies — especially of the goofy Star Wars variety — abound, especially online, where Darth Vader has been drolly recast as a super market manager named Chad and a contestant on The Apprentice. But Chicken serves up a unique, killer combo of stellar geek cred and exquisitely crappy stop-motion animation. 'The show looks like what nearly every kid did: You got out your cars and G.I. Joes and smashed them together,' says Chicken fan Mike Johnson, codirector of the 2005 stop-mo blockbuster Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. 'The show works because it captures the joy of playing with your toys.'

Specialized Technology Resources Inc Sept 2007 Product testers not playing around

ENFIELD, Conn. – Gone is the 40-hour work week at Specialized Technology Resources Inc. Boxes of toys are piling up in the middle of its testing lab, workers are coming in on weekends, and product testers who normally would check tools or candles are working on chess sets and plastic cars.

Business is bustling since the recent recalls of millions of toys. Management at the international product testing company is considering adding to its 1,600-person staff.

'Right now, we're using everybody in toy land,' said Linda Root, manager of the company's toy testing lab here.

The recalls have toy companies from the largest toy maker Mattel to small importers clamoring to hire companies such as STR to test and retest their toys as a way to allay consumer fears ahead of the key holiday shopping season.

Several testing firms operate worldwide, including Switzerland-based SGS Group, which has 48,000 workers in 1,000 locations; Bureau Veritas Group, with 26,000 employees in 700 locations; and London-based Intertek, which employs 20,000 people in 100 countries.

Mattel's first recall this summer, 1.5 million toys tainted with lead paint, was a wake-up call for the industry, said Sue DeRagon, STR's associate director of toys and premiums. Since then, Mattel and others have recalled more than 20 million toys for high lead levels or for small magnets that children can swallow, prompting toy companies to do more tests.

That's kept the lab, housed in an old textile mill in this town north of Hartford, plenty busy. Toy companies are sending samples of finished toys to test, especially for lead and magnets, which can be dangerous if they are swallowed and join together in the digestive system.

Testers conduct a battery of tests on each toy, based either on U.S. toy safety standards or something more stringent, if that's what a company wants.

To check for lead, lab workers use a razor blade to scrape off paint from the toy's painted surface. They need 0.1 grams of paint to test, which can be a challenge when dealing with something like dice that has only painted dots, or a chess set with lots of nooks and crannies.

'It is very tedious work. It's not easy,' Root said. 'You do have to pay attention so you don't lose fingers and cut yourself in any way. There is no easy way of getting it off. It can take hours.'

If a piece of a toy can be grasped or bitten, such as an arm or leg on an action figure, testers put that piece in a torque gauge and twist it to see if it snaps. Then, they pull the arm or leg for 10 seconds. Any piece that breaks off is measured in a 'small parts cylinder.' If it fits inside the shot glass-sized cylinder, it could choke a child.

Toys are also dropped several times and placed over a candle flame for five seconds, then allowed to burn for one minute to see whether they will easily catch fire.

Testers check for sharp edges and points, and look for long strings or other pieces of cloth that could strangle a child. If a loop of string can pass over a metal 'head probe' about the size of a baby's head, it could be dangerous, Root said.

Testers also look for so-called 'filth' in the stuffing inside plush toys. 'You find bugs. Dead bugs usually. If they sweep up the floor, there could be sawdust,' Root said.

Corolle June 2007 Playing with dolls is good for young guys.

The best-known toymaker in France is seeking to counter the spread of video games by encouraging boys to play with dolls.
Corolle has launched a campaign to persuade les filles to return to a product that they are abandoning and les garçons to join them.
The company says that it hopes to prepare toddlers for an adult life as New Men — caring, sharing and looking after babies.
It also wants to boost flagging sales by tapping into an untouched market for its poupées.
Mathilde Gailly, marketing director at Corolle, said:“Today fathers spend a lot of time taking care of their babies, so there is no reason why boys should not start with dolls.
“We get a lot of requests from parents and grandparents who want to buy a doll for their son or grandson.” She said that the company, a subsidiary of Mattel, the US company, was considering the development of a range of products to meet this demand.
“We have a lot of dolls dressed in pink. Why not some dressed in blue?” Mrs Gailly said that boys were happy to play with baby dolls, although not with Barbie-style toys.
“They like giving bottles and changing nappies but not brushing hair and doing make-up.” Although dolls have been in existence for the more than 4,000 years, the company says that the modern child, female and male, needs help in understanding them. So it is setting up workshops in Paris this autumn where two nursery nurses, a man and a woman, will offer advice on how to feed, clothe and bathe them.
“The point about dolls is that although there are no electronics involved, they offer an emotional apprenticeship,” Mrs Gailly said.
One of Corolle’s aims is to halt the spread of high-technology toys, which helped to drive down the doll market in France by 10 per cent last year, according to a recent study.
An initial workshop was organised yesterday to prepare for the campaign. “We have noticed that boys under 3 behave just like girls and place themselves in the role of the mother, giving bottles and changing nappies,” said a spokeswoman for Corolle.
“After 3 they start identifying with the father, and the way they play with their dolls changes. They put them on toy trains and send them down slides.” Edwige Antier, a leading child psychiatrist, said that boys who played with dolls would have no trouble establishing their sexual identity in later life.
“It’s not toys that influence sexual orientation,” she told Le Figaro. “But a boy will not manipulate a doll in the same way as his sister.” She added: “Fathers carry their babies around, why shouldn’t young boys push prams?” Corolle, bought by Mattel in 1989, sells two million dolls a year and had sales of ¤21 million (£14 million) in 2006. It has been exporting to Britain for three

Playing with dolls won't affect orientation

Dear Annie: Should a little boy have an American Girl doll? My 5-year-old son talks about nothing else since his older sister got one for Christmas. His 6th birthday is coming up, and he says all he wants is that doll. He loves to play with the Barbie his older sister gave him.
We have not objected, as it seems harmless, but other boys his age are leaving the dolls behind and growing out of the girly stuff. 'Danny' also likes to play with girls, even though we have tried to get him to play with boys. The boys are usually too rough for him.
My husband is OK with the dolls, as he played with dolls when he was a child. My husband is not the most 'manly' kind of guy, as he is not into sports and stuff like that, but he's great with the kids and helping around the house.
So should we buy Danny his American Girl doll?
Sissy's Mom
Dear Mom: We often imbue toys with more characteristics than they deserve. Danny's sexual orientation is not going to change because he is a gentle soul whose older sister is one of his role models. If he preferred playing with building blocks or modeling clay, you wouldn't think twice.Pretend it's a historical action figure. Better?

Smithsonian Dec 2006 Paper Dolls Not Just For Playing - The Ledger

Paper Dolls Not Just For Playing
The Ledger, FL -
Paper dolls might not be as popular now as when your mom was your age, but a museum exhibit in Washington, D.C., has today's kids thinking about these old toys in a modern way.

More than 100 black paper dolls are on display at the Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum. They belong to Arabella Grayson, who started collecting them after a friend gave her a black paper doll tucked inside a birthday card about 12 years ago. 'I played with paper dolls as a child,' Grayson said, but 'I couldn't recall ever seeing a black one before.'

Now she has more than 300. But these paper dolls - the oldest of which, Topsey, was made in 1863 - are more than childish playthings. 'Toys are teaching tools,' Grayson said. 'They're the way children learn.'

'The older ones represent slaves from history,' said Denzel Moigula, 9, who toured the exhibit recently with classmates from Friendship Southeast Elementary Academy in D.C. 'You learn how people dressed back then ... and how they were treated. Some of their clothes were ripped.'

With their unruly hair, patched clothing and untied shoes (if they even had shoes), these dolls defined a role and a look for blacks, an impression that was passed from one generation to the next at a very early age, Grayson said.

As late as the 1920s, a decade that celebrated blacks as World War I veterans and talented artists and musicians, among other things, black paper dolls showed only servants.

It wasn't until the 1930s that black paper dolls showed positive, independent images that gave a more complete picture of how black Americans lived, Grayson said. The 1960s civil rights movement helped usher in the first black family paper dolls as well as the first paper-doll books with both black and white characters.

The history behind the dolls wasn't lost on the Friendship kids, who made their own paper dolls after seeing the exhibit.

Briyanah Harris, 10, liked the fact that 'I can picture the people in those paper dolls. If I just close my eyes, I imagine real people.'

Playing to the Latino market - Denver Post

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Smiling from behind their rounded spectacles, Abuelito Pancho and Abuelita Rosa sing Spanish lullabies that stir warm childhood memories for many Latinos - and tug at their purse strings.
The silver-haired grandparent dolls are the inspiration of three working moms from Miami who set out to preserve Latino culture for future generations. They ended up on the toy shelves of major retail stores, including Toys 'R' Us and Target. Last month, Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, announced it would carry the dolls at more than 330 stores.
Dressed in a guayabera shirt and traditional house robe known as a bata de casa, the Baby Abuelita dolls appeal to an increasingly powerful but underserved consumer group, experts say. Since 2000, Latino buying power has increased from $489 billion to about $800 billion, growing about twice as fast as that of non-Latinos.

GoLive MystiKats complicates playing dolls

Posted Oct 5th 2006 1:28PM by Cyrus Farivar
Filed under: Misc. Gadgets, Gaming, Handhelds
hspace=4
These days Engadget is a male-only operation (it wasn't always that way), so unfortunately we don't have a female perspective on 21st century dolls. That said, based on our thick-skulled testosterone-infused research, we've just come across a new concept doll that strikes us as a bit too involved for a toy that can be perfectly enjoyable even when simple. The new GoLive MystiKats Interactive Fashion System combines regular dolls, a dock, and a proprietary handheld media player that takes 'themed cartridges.' (According to the company's site, each of the four characters have particular powers, like telekinesis, which were bestowed upon them by a mysterious 'kat' on their 18th birthdays.) Once you place a doll in the dock (or to use the company lingo, the 'GoLive Share'), then connect the media player, the doll will 'come to life,' allowing you to play with the doll, um, on a TV screen. But there's one catch: the 'interactive game play' only lasts for five hours. Now we're no experts, but we'd be willing to bet that we easily spent more than five hours interacting with our analog He-Man and G.I. Joe dolls action figures as kids. However, maybe that's the whole part of the shrewd plan: suckering parents into buying more cartridges. Either way, GoLive MystiKats are supposed to be available online and in stores for $100, but it's unclear how many accessories you'll get for that single Benjamin.
