Gendered Toys in 2012

Have you ever seen a commercial aimed at kids? It’s several minutes of toy commercials that hammer gender stereotypes into impressionable kid’s heads. What I wouldn't give to see the marketing companies breaking the social norms a bit to to show a little girl playing with a race car set, or a little boy enjoying a dollhouse, but nope, they’re still so blue and pink.

Seriously people, it’s 2012. Quit it.
