If you're wondering why I bring it up: the latest commercial for the Moxie Girlz mentions how the dolls come with their own "little anime friends," known as Moxieminis. The MoxieMinis look sort of like the old Playskool people, except that the heads are sassy little vaguely-kawaii!-inspired dolls.
Apparently "anime" is a big enough keyword with young girls that marketers think it'll help sell these dolls, which is kind of neat, I suppose. What do you think? Might one of these things help indoctrinate your younger sisters/cousins/nieces into the ways of anime?
Tip o'the hat to Kuriousity for tweeting about it.
