Posted by   + Show Post

If you are tired of toys being stereotyped gender specific at Toys R' Us (cleaning/shopping toys for girls, muscle men/computer stuff for boys) than sign this petition!!

*It doesn't really bother me, but I have to say that at any store (not just T.R.U) it does get frustrating when there isn't a middle ground. Say legos that either have princess' and pastel colors or Monster trucks and Batman.  No just wild jungle animals or regular toy people houses. This is just an example of course. I only posted it in case there are some who really hate gender stereotypes in toys.

Really?

*sigh*

I just go in and look for what I want for my grandson.  He does not know that some find it offensive, the way a store 'labels' the toys.

Who cares what the stores do?? Its about what you as parents do. If you refuse to allow your child to fall in gender stereotypes, it simply wont happen. My son loves pink and sparkles and rainbows and kitchens and Lego's and transformers and adventure time. he is allowed to express himself as he chooses.

Pink shopping carts rather than yellow shopping carts. I guess.

I'm pretty sure when I worked at Toys R Us the cleaning/household helping toys were in the girls section but they had gender neutral options.  Most stores sort their toys by gender.
