Kids will soon be playing with green plastic army women Made popular by the Toy Story movies, green plastic army men have been around since the 1930s. Thanks to six-year-old Vivian Lord,green plastic army women will soon join their ranks. BMC Toys received a letter from Lord asking why they did not make “army girls.” The toy maker had received this request before. But Lord’s letter inspired them to finally invest in the female soldiers. The army women will come in four different poses, and there will be24 figurines to a package. BMC Toys is committed to getting them in stores by Christmas 2020.
