"Because You're a Girl"

Where was this box when I was a kid? That's a girl on the box. A GIRL!! Man, I remember in the mid 90's when the "new" Creepy Crawlers commercials came out. I wanted one of these sets SO badly, but I didn't get one "because I was a girl" So much for that new fangled feminism within our family hierarchy.... Stupid ad execs gearing creepy crawlers commercials to boys, giving parents the wrong idea, making them think it was all about scaring their sisters and being gross...

Oh well. I make my own Creepy Crawlers now anyway. Who needs a stupid ole box set to help?
