Little Riley is pretty heated that toy companies are forcing their idea of gender on her pursuit of Christmas booty. Her astute observation that “the companies that make them try to trick the girls into buying pink stuff instead of the stuff boys want to buy!” is super cute and well beyond her years.

She definitely has a point, and one that I’ve been guilty of missing while buying gifts for the children in my life. Part of me still thinks in pink for girls and blue for boys, and I still haven’t decided how much of a problem that could be.

Were you mindful of forcing gender stereotypes on the toys you bought this Christmas?
