Yes, it’s by Hasbro, home of slagpiles of Disney Princess paraphernalia, My Little Pony, Baby Alive, Littlest Pet Shop, FurReal Friends, Easy Bake Oven, Star Wars, Transformers, Spiderman, G.I. Joe, Tonka, Super Soaker, and Nerf: all in carefully gender-segregated sections. Incidentally, the “Boys” section has twice as many toys as the “Girls” section.
As of right now, there’s one Transformer in the “Girls” section. I guess someone pressed the wrong button. Oh, and a pink, soft soccer ball.
Have your childhood favourites been reimagined through gender extremism? Have any of your gendered faves been re-cast as toys for all?
