Should Toys R Us and other toy stores be gender-neutral?

  • Of course we MUST support transgender children! (And adults)

    Think bigger. Allow children to be who they are naturally! They deserve to be happy and free to be themselves without being made to fit into societies limited rules!

    And to those of you concerned about Toys R Us and other corporate giants, rest assured they will find other ways to continue exploiting children for money. Let's support a COMMERCIAL FREE CHILDHOOD so children can see the world through their own eyes. Do you think it's normal for every little boy to love ninja turtles and every single little girl to love Frozen and the princess? Corporations are brainwashing our children to like what they SELL. So wrong on so many levels.

  • Get outside your little box.

    As a society we should stop reinforcing gender stereotypes. Children can decide for themselves what they like without being told "this is for boys," "this is for girls." Try seeing what the individual child gravitates toward instead of color coding and obsessively dividing everything. Work toward equality and respect between the genders.

  • Gender-Neutral Toys Are Good

    I think that gender-neutral toys are a good thing. If Toys R Us and other stores were more gender neutral, children would feel free to play with whatever they liked best. There may not be as much pressure on a boy who wants a doll or a girl who likes a truck. People are all individuals and it shouldn't matter what they play with as a child (obviously, if it's child appropriate).

  • They ruin property

    A kid should have a choice whether he/she wants to play with any types of toys he/she wants to play with. We should live that a kid's choice. It's also not fair. For example, only because you are borned as a girl, it's hard for you to use a boy's toy, even though you want to. This is a big problem.

  • Just have everything

    I mean kids should be allowed to play with whatever toys they want but I mean if everything is gender neutral except for the children themselves then it will just make the kids confused ...SO I think the should be toys for girls boys AND both. Why cant we just have all three

  • They should not.

    Toys R Us and other toy stores should not be gender neutral if they do not want to. They are a business and they have the right to make their stores be anyway they want to. If they think that it will not hurt their stores then they do not need to be gender neutral.

  • No, they should market to their audience.

    No, Toys R Us and other stores should not be gender neutral, because they have to market to their audience. Toys R Us should not have to market things to girls that boys want to buy. That is not an efficient business practice for them. They should be allowed to do what they think will sell toys.

  • The market should decide

    It's up to the parents to decide how to raise their kids. Children in Sweden are being raised in the most gender neutral society to date. They have catalogs of boys playing with girl toys and changed the language to have a term that isn't for him or her. That's ok just as raising a child in a more traditional form is ok. A boy can play with a doll if he wants just as mush as a girl can play with a firetruck. I feel that in due time we will follow Sweden's example but I think toy stores should would do better waiting for the trend to be sizable before making it a commitment to change what has worked so far.
