I've been wandering around all day looking for inspiration. hmm

And it seems that within toy sales it's imperatiove to be prosciptive. sad

Surely one of the major retailers could realise that cupcakes and butterflies for grils and transport and dinosaurs for boys is just ouutdated and break free from the molud and then just sit back and wait for hoards of satisfued MNers to boost their sales.

AIBsimplistic?

Sigh.

I'm just back to the computer now. I found that Facebook group, thanks 5mad smile

I'd be happy to start the thread (or join it if someone else starts it) - is Feminism the best place? Would enough people see it there?
