Challenging gender stereotypes of kids' toys

30 May 2016 1:20 PM
How gender stereotyping is perpetuated through children's toys, and looking at alternatives.

Pippa Hudson looks at this question of gender stereotyping, specifically around the messaging we are giving our children, and whether we perhaps unknowingly pass on stereotypes about what men and women can do and should do, by influencing what our kids play with.

She offers examples of alternatives to the typical toys marketed to boys and girls.

She chats to family psychologist Talya Ressel, Angelique Thompson - senior buyer at Toy Kingdom and Peter Crock is Divisional Director of Just Fun Toys
