From ABC News: Mom Offended by Toy Packaging Inspires Change
a Baltimore mom of two and public relations executive, was shopping for her 1-year-old daughter when she came across one of Fisher-Price's Little People toys that she initially "thought was a joke," she told ABC News.
The Little People toy SUV features a "mom figure," according to the product description. And on the box it reads, "Time for yoga and a smoothie!" My son's favorite toys growing up were Little People. I always just grabbed the fire truck or barn and didn't think much about it. Today when shopping for toys for Anna I was disgusted to see the "girl" versions of Little People. The only ones with all girl figures were all smothered in pink and purple, they worked in interesting places like the "home", and they all lacked the multiple educational elements the "boys" toys had. Then I set my eyes on this prize: "SUV" and a clearly mom looking figure. Please note tagline "time for yoga and a smoothie". It's 2016 people. Fisher Price needs to step it the f up and show women working in all types of fields and in leadership roles. Ok off my soap box. Carry on with your regularly scheduled Saturday night and election bashing....
And this folks is the reason why 2016 has been why it is, people who get offended over stupid stuff and are able to get their voices heard.
