More than 25,000 people have signed an online petition urging the maker of the “Easy Bake Oven” to feature boys on their packaging.

Capture We’ll talk about: why do boys prefer ‘boy’ toys and girls ‘girl’ toys? Should parents offer more gender neutral toys to their kids? Should they give girls ‘boy’ toys and vice versa, etc.? What does it ‘mean’ if boys like to play with ‘girl’ toys etc?
