I found this Avengers Assemble wallet in the boys’ section of Kmart. I’ve said before that I’m always intrigued when merch includes an underrepresented character, but leaves out one of the big four, and this wallet has Black Widow, but not Captain America. It’s pretty quality, too- especially for a product that’s being marketed to children.
This children’s shirt I found at kohls.com is flippin’ awesome. Not only does it have all the Guardians (a lot of children’s GotG shirts have left off Gamora- which has stirred up some controversy); it also has some characters you never see on t-shirts, whether they’re for children or adults.
It’s almost like they saw the controversy and went, “Lol Children’s Place, what was that about leaving Gamora off a boy’s shirt because she’s a female character? We’re going to make a boy’s Guardians of the Galaxy shirt that has two female characters on it! How do you like that?”
My only complaint is that it doesn’t come in grown-up sizes. I’d wear the hell out of this shirt!
