Collaborating with WIGI and The Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts has a long history of developing pioneers in the fields of science and technology. This workshop is not only fun for our Los Angeles area Girl Scouts, it’s a chance for girls to explore and experience STEM in a supportive environment.” said Lise Luttgens, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles chief executive officer.

"By creating a STEM-aligned video game patch program for Girl Scouts, we’re helping young women see what opportunities are open to them in these fields,” said Amy Allison, vice president at WIGI. “WIGI promotes diversity in the video game industry, and spearheading this effort means that women have more opportunities to be better represented in the next generation of video game creators."

  • We've partnered with Gaming Heads to create these Kratos and Atreus Exclusive Mini Figures. The two-pack includes a 3.5-inch-tall Kratos figure and a 2.75-inch-tall Atreus figure -- perfectly sized to display virtually anywhere. With Kratos holding his Leviathan Axe and Atreus with his Talon Bow at the ready, these figures are surprisingly detailed. They've also made an exclusive Bronze version that looks straight out of Tyr's temple.
