Hasbro do not just make toys; they manufacture popular culture.
In addition, two products from Hasbro’s 1970 line turned into public relations disasters: Javelin Darts were declared unsafe by the government, and Hypo-Squirt, a water gun shaped like a big needle, was dubbed by the press a “junior junkie” kit.
Hasbro also refocused on simpler toys, such as Mr. Potato Head—products that were inexpensive to make, could be sold at lower prices, and had longer life cycles.
Perhaps the most important event in Hasbro’s revival was the 1982 return of G.I. Joe. villains, whose personalities were sculpted with the help of Marvel Comics.
