We are big superhero fans in our house, I say we, its H and I that fit into this category at present. H has several superhero costumes as well as several of the action figures, all of them men. Although currently male dominated favouritism of superheroes exist in the OneDadOneBlog household, I don’t believe in gender stereotyping so hope D will also grow to love them too.
Warner Brothers, in partnership with Mattel and DC Entertainment have joined forces have tried to encourage more to #GetYourCapeOn through the recent release of cartoon series DC Super Hero Girls. DC Super Hero Girls is a new universe of Super Heroic tales which aim to build character, confidence and empowers girls to discover their true potential.
The series is based around the classic girl superheroes at high school age prior to dscovering their full potential with each character having their own back story and journey as well as exploring life as a teenager and the quest to become a hero.
Alongside all this, the first ever Super Hero action figures designed with girls in mind have been created in both 6 inch action figures and 12 inch size dolls for each of the DC Super Hero Girls (Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy, Katana and Wonder Woman). I would say that despite these being created with girls in mind, I still feel these are just as much enjoyed by boys too and help to create a more balance super hero collection for any fan.
The action figures are out today 1st July 2016 and are available for £9.99 or £19.99 for the 12 inch action dolls. Discover more about both the series and figures at DCSuperHeroGirls.com
We’re off to start fighting crime with both male and female super heroes….
Until next time
