    Re: Boys Own range

    It means things that are fun, exciting and likely to appeal to those who like adventure. It's a reference to Boy's Own Paper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia- if you scroll down to 'Contemporary Popular Culture', you'll see a mention of Boys Own as an idiomatic phrase in BrE.
