You gotta hand it to GIjOE’s “Founding Father,” Don Levine. At an age when most men are completely retired and content to put their feet up and watch reruns of old football games, Don is still out there pitching new toy concepts and achieving additional success. According to this new CBN VIDEO, Don’s legendary GIjOE creation has now racked up over $5 BILLION (that’s with a B!) in sales throughout the last 45+ years, and his Christian-themed “Almighty Heroes” line (launched in 2007 for the little kiddies) remains a best seller after 4 years. Don is clearly enjoying a duel-success story rarely achieved in the industry. Congratulations, Don!

    Just as Levine still feels a need to make toys, I am sure we still will be playing with our Joes if we make it into our 70’s. If there is a heaven, Let’s hope Levine will be making us Joes on the other side. 🙂

  2. Amen and Hallelujah to that! What a gift GIjOE has been to so many lives.

    Maybe when we die we’ll be given back all those Joes and accesories that were lost, eaten by the dog, or blown up in our backyard battles.

    I hope they provide shelving on the other side. Lots and lots of shelving.
