Boy toys and girl toys?

2009 February 17

Via GeekDad, I found this link to a Psychology Today blog post that briefly reviews research on primate preferences for toys.  The research suggests that boys’ preference for masculine toys and girls’ preferences for feminine toys might be attributed to biology rather than socialization.  GeekDad is skeptical, as are many of his commenters.  Maybe Barbie, Ken, and G.I. Joe, who will all be with us tomorrow, can shed some light on the issue.
