Finally: Little Green Army Women Coming Soon


As a U.S. military veteran I love this story! A six-year-old girl in Arkansas named Vivian Lord recently sent a letter to a bunch of toy companies, because a set of little green "Army men" she got didn't have any women. She said her friend's mom was in the Army. So she didn't get why all the toys were men. And if they made ones that looked like women, she'd play with them every day. Jeff Imel owns a small toy company in Scranton, Pennsylvania called BMC Toys and he decided to actually do something about it.. After he read Vivian's letter, he designed some female Army toys which will be released next year.
