Not a game for all ages

My friend Beth and I were browsing the clearance items at Barnes & Noble after lunch today, when we came upon this gem:

Games of Thrones toysGame of Thrones figurines.

In the children’s section

I looked — these POP! toys are also prominently featured on the GOT website homepage.  Are the show producers really trying to encourage small children to watch this series?

I readily admit to not watching Game of Thrones.  But based on the promos, marketing materials and magazine articles I have seen, I feel I can confidently say —

This isn’t a kiddie program.

Craig Ferguson doesn’t watch it either.  But when he interviews cast members during their visits to The Late Late Show, he always shakes his head in regret saying, “There are boobies on that show!”

Which kinda makes ya think babies shouldn’t be watching…right?
