Why "Playscale?"

This term is only a textual term for the scale, not the hobby itself. From what I can tell, it is derived from the fact that toy figures, most notably Mattel's Barbie, followed by Hasbro's GI Joe, are the source of this scale standard. This is not to say that all things that conform to this scale standard are toys, like some detractors propose. Indeed, some dollhouses and accessories in this scale are quite detailed and unsuited for "play."
