Walk into any local Dallas toy store and you will notice a remarkable amount of pink “girly” toys and very dark-colored “boyish” toys. Go back approximately two decades, although, and you may just discover this drastic separation by color was not always in existence.
The group, Let Toys Be Toys, goes around asking toy and hobby shop retailers to stop their classification of toys by gender as you can see from the image they recently tweeted showing marketing now compared to that of the past. The photo shown above is a page from a 1976 toy catalog. Shown on the right, they placed newer toys to 2013, with similar toys in corresponding spots on the left.
When you walk in to any of our Dallas Toy Store locations at Hobby Town USA Texas, you will not notice a large amount of separation between girls and boys.
