From The Resurgent: Hasbro Throws Out Gender Categories For Toys

I have three nieces, aged 12, 9, and 8, and over the years they’ve played with plenty of toys, although they’re starting to get to the age where they play with them less. Naturally, they’ve most often gone for “girl toys” – baby dolls, Barbies, that sort of thing. Occasionally they’ve played with some of mine and my brother’s old toys that still live at my parent’s house, but time and time again, it’s the girl toys they’ve stuck with.

Now Hasbro has gone and done something they think is revolutionary: CEO Brian Goldner has announced that they’ve gotten rid of all gender distinctions for their toys.
