Kyle recently shared some pictures of his nephew playing with M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. It is encouraging and heartwarming to see M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are still used and enjoyed by children over 20 years after their original release.
Whether it is a sexist preconceived notion, Mattel’s catalog, or only the lens of personal experience; many collectors simply think of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures as a “boy’s toy” instead of a toy. This modern M.U.S.C.L.E. moment captures the figures as simply toys, and reminds us of the incredible amount of creativity that M.U.S.C.L.E. figures provide a child.
These pictures are from the summer of 2009, likely June. My son, about 20 months old, had grabbed some extra figures that had been part of an eBay purchase. My plan to have everything neatly put away before he woke up was spoiled. It was probably the most fun I have ever had with M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.
Sociology 200 and 300 will focus on contemporary M.U.S.C.L.E. culture. Sociology 200 will highlight present-day children that have discovered, or been given the gift of, M.U.S.C.L.E. toys. Sociology 300 will focus on adults that continue to be passionate about M.U.S.C.L.E.
