Guidecraft Hollow Blocks Feature

The days of pink princess toys for girls and blue superhero toys for boys might soon be behind us.

Studies have shown that gendered toys reinforce gender stereotypes and limit the range of skills and interests that children develop. When girls are encouraged to cook and take care of babies and boys are pushed to play with action toys and build towers, they learn from an early age that those are the roles they’re expected to fill in their adult lives.

 

Importance of gender neutral toys

When children are given the opportunity to play with a wide range of toys, their development is enhanced and they’re less likely to subscribe to traditional gender roles. Blocks promote the development of spatial awareness while dolls teach empathy and musical toys enhance cognitive development. By offering kids a variety of traditionally “male” and “female” toys as well as gender-neutral items, we give them the gift of holistic development.

Now that’s a priceless present! 

Unisex gifts are also useful when someone you know is having a baby and keeping the gender a surprise until they give birth. Baby items that aren’t pink or blue can be surprisingly hard to find, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
