I mean I I told the president the company has said you know we're gonna keep your business just with the -- purchases.
I can't thank -- -- what is what is involved with the bill bringing -- a toy like this because you're working with Disney and with Fisher Price to industry leaders.
We needed to involve you from the start -- -- -- look at the last second satellites already go to show up and promote and how does it how do you get well it.
It's it's more than that there there's such a history with that the Disney organization I'm in show business because of Disney.
