My little GS has just turned 2 and as he enjoys playing with a doll when he's at our house [as well as cars, bricks etc] I thought I'd buy him a little boy doll.
I visited 3 well known shops and found plenty of dolls dressed in pink - even in the PINK section of one shop [no dolls in the BLUE section] - but eventually found an anatomically correct boy doll dressed in blue BUT the box was PINK, had a picture of a little GIRL cuddling it and on turning the box over I found words saying how much little GIRLS would enjoy cuddling this doll!!! [cant remember the exact words except for GIRL]. I bought the doll but removed all packaging before I gave it to him.
In today's society with gender equality and all that and men more involved with their children, I am amazed that some children's toys are still very much gender biased.
What do you think?
