If you're going to try to April Fools people, then at least get the company right. Estes was bought by HOBBICO. Hasbro is a game company.

Nice try though.

Actually in some weird, twisted, way, he's not far off. Barry Tunick, the former owner of Estes (along with an investment firm), was originally one of the executives of Coleco. He was in charge of marketing the Cabbage Patch Dolls. Coleco went under, and Hasbro purchased its assets, hiring some of the executives in the process. But after a very short time, Tunick wanted to get out of that, and his brother (part of that investment firm) got him the gig at Estes, and a few years later he bought it.
