Some overgrown children may not want women to be Ghostbusters. But based on toy sales for the new female-led Ghostbusters movie, actual kids seem to like the notion just fine.

The new Mattel says the line of Ghostbusters action figures (or are they dolls? -- it doesn't matter!) is selling briskly to both boys and girls, according to a report published in Variety.

The better-than-expected toy sales come after the surprisingly controversial all-female remake of the 1984 classic opened in modestly successful second place last weekend.

In addition to the figures modeled after the movie's four stars -- Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones -- Mattel is marketing an "Ecto" vehicle and a Proton pack, according to Variety.
