Hi Richard,

The conference on Girls and Toys genrated a lot of excellent dialogue, as well as debate. I love how you bring different people together whether in a conference or on your blog.

As to the title of this post: I say AMEN! to the fact that toys are still gender skewed because most play is gender-based. Girls and boys play differently after the age of 2 and while there are still areas of common ground for boys and girls play (play involving exploration and mastery for example), most imaginative play is gender-based. Not surprisingly, the industry has taken notice and has responded appropriately.

Warmly,

Nancy Zwiers

Thanks for opening the conversation to a more open approach. We live in aworld that does not always allow for gender bias.
