Travelling Blamer

That’s some great blaming by my friend baroquestar and her trusty digital camera. Check it out here.

  1. A picture is worth a thousand words then.

  2. The pictures of the WoW costumes over at her LJ certainly speak volumes. And the Lisa t-shirt. Excellent blaming indeed.

  3. As well as the obvious aggravating differences, I find it really interesting how the design aspects of these boxes reflect so much of our attitudes to kids and gender – the way the “boys” box has ‘Go!’ in a bright fiery bubble and the “girls” toy has ‘pretty!’ with a flower in the exclamation mark – boys do stuff, girls are for looking at. This kind of division is everywhere, though usually more subtle.
    The original post is hilarious though 🙂

  4. Personally, I love how they don’t even pick the right age for the girl on the cover/make the trolley the right height, so she has to bend down at an awkward angle.
    “Hey parents! Give your pretty little daughters a head start on all the back-breaking work women are expected to do!”

  5. And the dress, oh my, the DRESS.
