I don’t know how to handle this Social Science question and need guidance.
Examine the toy sections, the types of toys, and the gender differences. Answer the
following questions with a 300 – 350 word paper.
1. What differences do you see between toys targeted for little girls in contrast to toys
targeted for little boys? What skills do “boy” toys focus on? What skills do “girl” toys
focus on? Think sociologically. Examine the types of toys.
2. Examine the Barbie doll section. What do you see as a sociologist? Be specific. What
does the toy represent? How is Barbie different from GI Joe?
3. Discuss why it is important to examine the gender differences in toys. Be specific.
