Crafting toys to suit the quirkiness of the human imagination is not that surprising really.
Consider the patriot game paramilitary comic book franchise "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" (Hasbro) which features various toy action-figures to accompany the imaginative adventure stories and how the characters in these stories can be personalized:
"The Baroness, sinister consultant of the terrorist organization Cobra, has always worked against the heroic G.I. Joes. One day, however, the Baroness discovers that she has an illegitimate child (named Alex) from a past relationship during her non-combatant life and must find ways to provide for her child a normal and healthy life. The Baroness considers quitting Cobra and perhaps marrying the eccentric and noble G.I. Joe named Snake Eyes with whom she will raise Alex in peace. Can the Baroness and Snake Eyes leave behind a selfish world of relentless warfare and raise Alex together on a farm?"
