Not a Pivot, More a Plunge: A Startup Story Shifts

Early last year, I found myself unexpectedly accepting a Rising Star award at the annual Women in Toys gala. Unprepared and overwhelmed, I delivered an acceptance speech that can best be described as a comedy routine/confessional: lots of laughs at my own expense. Ironically, the biggest laugh of the night followed the one line that wasn’t a joke. “We’re not really a toy company,” I announced to a room of 600 toy company executives who were recognizing me for the work I do designing and producing toys: female action figures, to be exact. And I meant it.

Meet Honesty. The third building block of Courage.

By | Rebel Elements | No Comments

Honesty’s wings reference the winged art of Ancient Persia. According to the world’s first historian, Herodotus, the Persians taught their children three things: to ride a horse, to shoot an arrow and to tell the truth.

Female Superhero Action Figures - Honesty

Honesty is one of our most popular action figures – everyone loves the wings!  However, when it comes time to pick a power at one of our public events like New York Comic Con, she generally isn’t one of the top choices.

This isn’t necessarily because Honesty isn’t valued, or considered important. Rather, It is because people often think of Honesty as a moral imperative rather than a powerful force.

Meet Energy. The second building block of Courage.

Energy’s flames are just plain cool, but they also hint at Joan of Arc’s fiery end.

Energy can sometimes be misinterpreted as dangerous, or hard to manage. But, Energy is, arguably, one of the elixirs of life. It is the kind of power that helps to get things done.

When someone channels her own Energy, it propels her forward. But, Energy can also be shared; put out into the universe to motivate others to act.

Courage requires Energy to creat

Bravery, Building Block of Courage

By | Rebel Elements | No Comments

Meet Bravery. The first building block of Courage.

Bravery’s shoulder armor accessory is our most literal interpretation of both her power and of our Joan of Arc muse. She is a soldier heading into battle. And battle can mean a lot of different things.

Female Superhero ToysIt can be….

The first day at a new school.
A soccer game (or any sports event).
Learning a new skill (like riding a bike).
Starting a new job.
Fighting an illness.
Standing up for yourself.
Standing up for someone else.
Going to war – both literally and figuratively.

But, no matter what, Bravery will always be there to help Superheroes power through. Read More

Courage: Inspiration From Joan of Arc

By | Rebel Elements | No Comments

We thought that it was a good time to spotlight our TOTY-nominated Action Figures of the Year: Series1/Courage.

So, let’s start at the very beginning with the our Courage muse: Joan of Arc.

Our muses are very important in the IAmElemental universe. First, they help to promote the IAmElemental tagline: Real heroes walk among us. It is very important that children who encounter IAmElemental action figures come away with an understanding that people don’t have to have magical powers to be their best selves and do great things. Joan of Arc was just a regular girl before she acted heroically and became eternally embedded on history’s timeline. Read More
