I have a 3 year old DD with SN and she isnt at this stage yet, but I notice already that all of her age peers seem totally sucked into the pink for girls/blue for boys thing and I am noticing how many toys and books have male heros or show men doing construction type activities and women doing domestic activities and I dont like it. I would like to make sure our toys and books at home at least dont promulgate this message and am prepared to put a fair bit of effort into it.
But can anyone suggest some good suppliers, manufacturers, publishers that I can source products from?

You should be able to source the USA stuff on amazon you may have to pay extra shipping.

Barefoot books are good as well.
