Mattel Books - She-Ra Princess of Power (early 1980s classic) 0:30 (USA)

Wow, back in the day, toy were making books for kids to read bout their toys. Kind of like Star Wars books, but you know, with She-Ra. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but if it encouraged kids to read, then I guess it's okay. Also, what a great song, too. SO inspiring and majestic and regal. I wonder if they made a He-Man version and what that book was like. I'll bet somewhere there's a Gen X type who saved it, like they saved everything from their childhood. Now me, I saved memories and that's it. I don't even leave footprints in the sand of time. Wait, what? Never mind.

I wonder what it was like to work on this stuff in the 80's. If you worked on a toy account in the 80's, I wonder, would you have wanted to slit your wrists at the end of your career or was it really fun? I can just imagine the director yelling at the kids to look more interested in the product. I would have loved that. I'll bet the advertising people who had kids probably came home with so much Mattel stuff it was insane.

"...The fate of the world's in the hands of a beautiful girl..."

So... empowerment is good, as long as you're attractive.

possibly, it looks like her but we didn't get actors credits, so I can't say for sure.
