Spider-Man for Girls

I stopped in at my local McDonald's this morning and saw something interesting hanging on the wall behind the counter. They were selling a complete set of Happy Meal toys that tied in with the recent film release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

But please notice how the color scheme of the toys is pink and purple rather the more-expected Spider-Man red and blue. And also notice how the 'toys' include a tiara and bracelets and heart-shaped tin cans. It seems that these Happy Meal toys were specifically targeted for girls. I like that.

On a related note, one of my all-time favorite Saturday Night Live skits is a mock advertisement for a Chess for Girls game. If you've never seen that skit for yourself, have some fun over here.
