Wonder Woman Toys From The 1970s vs Wonder Woman Toys From 2017

 
  Throughout history, Wonder Woman will remain amongst the most renowned superheroes, and most importantly, the greatest heroine in of all time. Owing to her popularity, different action figures of Wonder Woman have been released since her film debuted in the 1970s, and this trend is continuous now that cinematic characterization of the beautiful and bold starlet have been released to the populace.

From the cinematic characterizations in toys, it is apparent the depiction of Wonder Woman in toys released in the 1970s varies markedly from the depiction of Wonder Woman in toys to be released later in 2017. The first toys of Wonder Woman were produced by Mego in 1974 and followed the release of a four-line product entitled World's Greatest Super Girls. The supergirls were favorite companions of the heroes.

The characterizations in toys wore one casually fitting silk-screen jumpsuit. Even though this dressing was appropriate for other figures, Wonder Woman figures were crude-looking toys, as most of the character's skin is exposed. The figure stood at eight 8" tall and was packed in a window box. There are many variations with the figure to be released in 2017 in terms of artwork, doll, packaging, accessories, design, and international releases. Moreover, some figures in 1974 were launched with removable shoes while a majority were made of silk-screen shoes on the jumpsuit. However, Wonder Woman toys that are yet to be released in November 2017 depict the character in different attires, unlike the traditional attire of the figure in 1974. The maiden Wonder Woman toy will be a poseable figure that comes with an array of weapons alongside the traditional lasso, including her iconic golden red battle armor, sword, and a black horse. Moreover, apart from the traditional glamorous jumpsuit worn by the upcoming Wonder Woman toy, the remaining strand of toys are also dressed in different attires. One toy will feature Wonder Woman's clad in a formal Themyscirian golden armor, arrows and bow, and with her black hair tied to her back. Moreover, another Wonder Woman toy depicts the superhero in a blue dress wielding her sword. The characterization features a scene in the upcoming Wonder Woman film set to be launched in November this year.

The beautiful character in the toys set for release in 2017 contrast Wonder Woman toys that were released in 1975. During this year, Wonder Woman was included in the Bend 'N Flex product line. The Wonder Woman toy was a 5" depiction of characterization in the World Greatest Super Girl product line. The toys were made of rubber fused to a wire frame and packaged in a blister card. In 1976, Mego agreed to widen their superhero characteristics in a bid to sell more vehicles and playsets and the action figure was reduced to a 3. 75" figure. The Wonder Woman toy appeared brutish, unlike the beautiful though bold Lynda Carter. This was the first time when a Wonder Woman toy was released with an accessory, a lasso that she held in the right hand.

Even though the Wonder Woman toys released in the late 20th century set the stage for improvements seen in the Wonder Woman toys set for release later 2017, they are way below the starlet toy of the 21st century.

What Is The Fascination With Fidget Spinners Compared To The Rubik's Cube?

 
  The fidget spinners are this year's hottest craze. They are small, colorful and are everywhere. I bet you have seen the majority of your classmates and friends with one of those. A fidget spinner is a small, ball-bearing device a person twirls between his/her fingers. It swept the world off of its feet as kids and even adults have gotten into this sensation. It is marketed as a device that helps to relieve people of ADHD, anxiety, and autism.

The Rubik's Cube
Now, let's talk about a game that had died down a bit. The Rubik's cube. I'm positive that there is almost no one of the older generation who doesn't know what a Rubik's cube is. And I'm sure that the majority of the younger generation knows what a Rubik's cube is. A Rubik's cube is (as defined by Wikipedia) a small 3D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by the Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Erno Rubik.

So now let's talk about the fascination with the fidget spinners compared to the Rubik's cube, which one is better in your opinion? Fidget spinners or the Rubik's cube?

The fidget spinners claim to help people with ADHD, anxiety, and autism. And it's also marketed as a device that will help teenagers and even adults to keep stress at bay. Marketers have also claimed that it helps adults to quit smoking, stop biting their nails and even shaking their legs.

There is some controversy around that claim though; there is a possibility that it could help people with autism as it does focus on the spinner itself, but there is no hard fact that it could help kids with ADHD. People with ADHD tend to move their limbs to relieve themselves.

There is a new toy, rather similar to the fidget spinner called the fidget cube. On the par of the cube, there is a variety of buttons that could potentially help people with ADHD and anxiety and not cause as much stress to teachers and other people as the fidget spinner does. Let's not forget that schools have started banning their students from carrying the fidget spinner with them saying that it distracts the kids from studying and focusing on the teachers. However, some teachers say that's not a toy, it's a tool. In some schools, the teachers have allowed the kids with severe ADHD to bring the fidget spinner to school and use it in class saying that it helps those kids a lot. Do you agree or disagree?

Talking about the safety of these two toys, both of them are safe for kids. But teenagers today are coming up with dangerous acts for the fidget spinners. Some kids spin them while they are on fire, and others create fidget spinners with knives and blades and it keeps getting crazier and crazier.

As for the famous Rubik's cube, it has actually been said that it helps to sharpen up the brain and make you more focused. When the Rubik's cube was invented, Professor Erno (Who invented the cube) used it on his students to help them understand spatial relationships. One of the good sides, about solving Rubik's cube, is that it's an open-ended puzzle. You don't need a manual to solve it and the way your friend solves the cube is different from yours.

The Rubik's cube can improve your spatial intelligence, mental reflex, memory, patience, and concentration. Plus, I'm sure that the pride you feel when you finish solving a Rubik's cube is way better than what you feel while spinning the fidget spinner.
