of the gender-boring and violence-loving superhero characters, what do
you do? You tell him that he can create his own super power beings.
Introducing… ugh… tin…tin… TINKITMAN???
My child, “He flies, he likes flowers, and he makes honey.” Me, “But, what does ‘tinkit’ mean?” He said, “I don’t know.” “So what’s his name again?” “Tinkitman! Tinkitman!”
