First Paragraph:

The rising recognition of toys as an understudied form of culture has led to a number of recent explorations of toys and toy franchises. Such studies and books come from a variety of perspectives, including sociology, the political economy of media companies, the history of industry, media studies, fan studies, and explorations of specific toy lines and connected “branded entertainment” texts.
