Amazon Loses Gendered Toy Categories

amazon_logo_RGB

Well, in a bit of exciting news, Amazon has decided to get rid of its “boy” and “girl” categories in their toy department. You can, of course, still search for “boy” or “girl”, but there is no longer a gender option tick box along the sidebar, which is a wonderful first step! After all, who says boys can’t play with dolls, or girls can’t play with diggers?! When I was little I played with my dolly and my toy concrete mixer equally, and that’s the way it should be!

What do you think, is this a step in the right direction, or should girls stay pink and boys stay blue? Let me know in the comments!
