  • 19. Brown describes the following case: “For example, in one experiment, researchers took toys that kids had not seen before and put them in stereotypical girl boxes or stereotypical boy boxes and gave them to a group of children. Girls played with the toys in the girl boxes and boys gravitated to the toys in the boy boxes. Both genders focused on the toys in the boxes meant for their gender and did not pay much attention to toys marked for the opposite gender,” available at http:// www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2016/may/28/toys-kids-girls-boys- childhood-development-gender-research?CMP=share_btn_fb (accessed February 27, 2017).
