wyhy dont they make toys for boys from princess movies, like tangled the guy flynn, or terrence from tinkerbell this isnt fair to boys who like the hero's or male figures.

it makes me so mad they make all these movies and then make all the merchandise pink and for girls alone, well my son likes the hero and the movie tangled, for good reason too it was awesome but hey guess what there are not shirts with blue that say tangled or have flynn on it, or boy version style combs with action figure characters on it, boys like to take care of their looks too, maybe not as intense as girls but still. I think this should apply for all movies, it shouldnt just be directed for girls, there are hero's in almost every princess movie. . .

  • i found these too but you cant find shirts and things like that for boys and its really frustrating having to tell a 4 year old he cant have the shirt his little sister has when they both like it so much. i just dont understand why they are just geared and aimed for girls. I have a boy and a girl so i am not just being biased i just honestly dont understand and think it isnt fair

  • Is not really fair but if their marketing dep says that is not that much market for boys sometimes they rather not to do any than make a 1000 and sell just 100 but you could make your own too with your printer and some of those iron sheets that allows you to put any image on the shirt. In my opinion I don't let my daughter see that many of those movies because that is how we women get messed up thinking that is going to be a prince that save us and willing to do anything for our love blah blah blah !

  • When Disney-Pixar's Cars came out they didn't gear anything for girls. There was a main character girl-Sally. There have been others that were geared towards boys. I think you're blowing things a bit out of proportion. If you are this upset because of an animated character, how on Earth do you cope with everyday life? What good is complaing on CM going to do you? If you want your opinion to count, contact Disney. We here on CM do not make decisions on their merchandise.

  • oh ok anon, its just one of those silly frustrations, not a literal one, it would be fun to get some accesories for him that he would be excited about, i know these things and phases dont last forever but they are still fun. my little sister just passed away a few months ago so i know all about having to cope with "real life" and belive it or not "CM" is a place for moms to vent to one another so this would be the place you angry anon woman. This has to do with being a parent and my 4 year old, sooooo who else am i to turn to, its for you to guess but chances are if i am venting on here i probably dont have many people especially considering that my best friend is dead. . . thanks for your rude opinion though

  • You gotta love the Anons who want to be a**es. She is asking a relevant question, and is certainly not complaining to the point where it requires responses like yours.
