A Real American Hero, A Really Popular Toy

by Rich Handley
The results of a recent poll conducted by The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, which drew more than 24,000 voters, have deemed G.I. Joe the favorite toy of the century, followed by Transformers, Legos, Barbie dolls and View-Master kits. This poll just confirms what everyone who was boy in the 1980s already knew: G.I. Joe is damn cool.

If you're a Joe fan, then James McFadden's upcoming publication for Hasslein Books, Fighting for Freedom: The Unauthorized G.I. Joe Chronology, will be right up your alley. Keep an eye on this space for more information, as James is currently hard at work on this great new timeline book, which will explore the vast fictional world of G.I. Joe in comics, cartoons, feature films and more.

Totally agree. GI Joe toys are popular for both kids, teens, and young adults. The first two categories plays with them while the latter collects them as collectibles. I on the other hand is more interested with Fast and Furious diecast collectibles :)
