Gendered Toys

Various studies in sociology, psychology, and economics have shown toys for children are becoming increasingly gendered.  The toys children play with can shape their development and future interests.  Other studies have shown children prefer to play with toys marked for their gender.

The television show The Weekly covered the topic of gendered toys. If you have a VPN you can watch the following clip; if not it can be found here.  Update: Rey will not be added.
