G. I. JOE DAY 2018

Toys have always been a favourite gift to children on Christmas Day or birthdays.  Probably this is because it keeps the children occupied and less troublesome.  But, in reality, toys, like dolls, are really for educational and value formation purposes.  Aside from it appealing to the child’s imagination and creativity, it trains the child to make use of his/her senses.

When is the G. I. Joe Day in 2018?

G. I. Joe Day is on February 1, 2018, a Thursday.

G. I. Joe Day is observed annually, in Rhode Island, on the first day of February.

History of G. I. Joe:

G. I. Joe is a line of action toys produced by an American company, Hasbro, after World War I.  Its initial products represent the four sections of the United States Military Force:  the Action Soldier (Army), Action Sailor (Navy), Action Pilot (Air Force) and Action Marine (Marine Corps).  In 1967, they introduced the Action Nurse Girl which didn’t do as well as the original products.

As G. I. Joe toys are merely experts in martial arts, explosives and weapons, they introduced the Bullet Man in 1976.  This is to have a representation in the popular trend then of superheroes.  This is the weirdest variety of G. I. Joe but did not stop the toy line to be known as America’s movable fighting men.

History of the G. I. Joe Day:

G. I. Joe, though only twelve inches high, had been inducted, in 2003, into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York.  Its special day was created through the proclamation of Rhode Island governor Donald L. Carcieri.

The G. I. Joe Day observance:

Suggested activity for children on this bizarre fun day includes purchasing and playing G. I. Joe toys with friends.  Adults may also join the kids in watching a 1945 US war film, which stars Ernie Pyle and Robert Mitchum, titled “The Story of G. I. Joe.”  Other films are “The Rise of Cobra” and “Retaliation.”  Teenagers may also enjoy playing video games, watching television series reruns or reading G. I. Joe comics.
