Mighty Beanz

Mighty Beanz are toys manufactured by Moose Enterprises, a corporation headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.

An individual Mighty Bean is a three dimensional ovaloid with small flat circular ends on either side, rather like a large plastic capsule, approximately one inch long. These are frequently coloured with bright colours, and many of them bear cartoon likenesses of Marvel superheroes or other licensed characters. The Moose version of the toy was launched in 2003; similar toys have existed for years before.

The toys are hollow and contains a small, dense spheroid inside, which is not quite as long in diameter as the inside of the mighty bean to allow for movement. The Mighty Bean can stand up on either end because the spheroid is pulled over the centre by gravity. This pulls the centre of mass of the Mighty Bean over its tiny base, making it impossible for the Mighty Bean to fall down.

When a Mighty Bean is placed on a slant, instead of simply sliding down, the Mighty Bean falls on its side, and the spheroid rolls down and up the other end. In doing this, the ball rolls slightly up the other side of the Mighty Bean, causing the centre of mass to shift away from the Mighty Bean's long base, making it fall over. It stands vertically for a moment, and repeats the process.

Good Housekeeping warns that since these beans are small objects named after a foodstuff, they may represent a choking hazard to toddlers.

Good Housekeeping warns that since these beans are small objects named after a foodstuff, they may represent a choking hazard to toddlers. General Motors enthusiasts do not have to deal with such a confusion, since an unadorned GM always means the corporate parent. It stands vertically for a moment, and repeats the process. A similar solution was found; enthusiasts refer to FoMoCo, which as well as an abbreviation is also the name applied to generic Ford-brand parts. In doing this, the ball rolls slightly up the other side of the Mighty Bean, causing the centre of mass to shift away from the Mighty Bean's long base, making it fall over. A similar situation exists for the Ford Motor Company, where "Ford" might mean either the brand or the parent. When a Mighty Bean is placed on a slant, instead of simply sliding down, the Mighty Bean falls on its side, and the spheroid rolls down and up the other end. Thus, for example, a car club for owners of any Chrysler Corporation vehicle might describe itself as a club for "Mopar enthusiasts.".

This pulls the centre of mass of the Mighty Bean over its tiny base, making it impossible for the Mighty Bean to fall down. This is because the Chrysler name is confusingly applied both to the parent company and to one of its brands, so if one wanted to refer unambiguously to the parent company, another word was needed. The Mighty Bean can stand up on either end because the spheroid is pulled over the centre by gravity. The term has, however, passed into a broader usage among car enthusiasts as an inclusive word for any of Chrysler's brands, but generally any Chrysler, Dodge or Plymouth car and truck. The toys are hollow and contains a small, dense spheroid inside, which is not quite as long in diameter as the inside of the mighty bean to allow for movement. The term was first used by Chrysler in the 1920s and has been in continuous use ever since. The Moose version of the toy was launched in 2003; similar toys have existed for years before. Mopar (short for MOtor PARts) is the automobile parts and service arm of all the DaimlerChrysler American brands that were formerly owned by the Chrysler Corporation.
