Toy website Under The Christmas Tree recently told us they will reorganise their website by theme, although it may take a while as they have around 1000 pages. They said:
We felt that many toys cross over between girls and boys
Children like to take part in joint games and activities and should be encouraged to do so
We feel that children should be free to choose which toys they want to play with
Earlier this month we also heard from blogger, The Toy Tattler, who says, “The blog is having a little make-over, as I strive to make it gender-neutral (no more ‘toys for boys’ and ‘toys for girls’ segregation)”.
Let’s hope these two positive stories are paving the way for many more changes this year.
