As part of the promotion for Spider-Man 2 out this week, Sony is doing a deal with McDonalds on Happy Meal toys. I’ve had issues with McDonalds around their Happy Meal Toys when it involves superheroes - the lack of female characters and the fact they superhero toys are defaulted for the “boy” toy. This is in comparison to the Burger King which has offered toys for movies such as Thor designed for all kids.
That’s why I’m excited that for the Spider-Man 2 promotion there is a wide variety of toys offered for all kids. Sure some of in primary colors and some are in pink but they are all Spider-Man.
The idea that all children could like Spider-Man is refreshing one and I’m happy to see this.
As you celebrate Halloween and come across any young girls dressed as a Superhero or one of yours dresses like one, please send them to me so I can publish it on Girls Love Superheroes like the one below!

My friend put together this GIF of my daughter… BLOCKING BULLETS WITH HER WONDER WOMAN BRACELETS! I think she’s ready to start fighting crime.
How fantastic is this?
This is from last Halloween. She asked to be “Stephanie Brown, Robin” I had to keep explaining to people that yes there was a girl Robin.
Are you following Superheroes are for Girls, too? Everyday there are wonderful positive images. Like the one above. Yes, indeed there was girl Robin.
