A to Z of How I Learned to Love D&D: G is for Grell
Thankfully, my Mom agreed (which happened far more often than not--yes I was spoiled) and remember playing with them for hours, but not really understanding that they were monsters.
Honestly, since I didn't start roleplaying until college, this is what DnD meant to me for years, toys and cartoons. I firmly believe it really shaped my idea of storytelling and pacing, as I've only truly grasped fantasy as a genre in the last several years.
I wish I knew where these toys were, I'd be glad to share them with my kids. I was pleased when Hasbro produced Kre-O's for DnD last year, and bought my son some.
Its a shame Hasbro doesn't do more with the IP, I think everyone is missing out.
