How a hyper-gendered age of toys affect children

| No Comments

Author Peggy Orentstein has studied family politics and gender for years. She says we are fighting the same battles we did in the 1970s with gender specific toys. One study that she talked about showed that 3 year old girls with older brothers have better spacial skills and are more excepting of gender-neutral toys. I thought it was interesting how unspecific she described the study. What type of study was it? A longitudinal? Was this based on observation or surveys? How many people were studied and where? There are still so many questions that need to be answered.
