    @rainbowpoptart  You make a very good point. But what I think PCG is trying to say is that maybe someone should consider that some girls don't like pink? Like, I loved playing with doll houses as a kid AND toy cars. But what if someone made a black Barbie house. Like hell yeah I would buy that. Or maybe a pink you car. Wouldn't that be cool? Maybe what I'm trying to get at here is that companies could mix and match their toys together. Use different colors for different items. That would help expand their market much more.  What I'm really impressed though is what Barbie is doing at the moment with making different body types for their dolls. That's awesome right? Anyway, if a girl wants to get a toy car then she can just waltz her way to the boys section and get one. Sure it's kinda disregarding that maybe a girl would like a toy car but man, that's not stopping her from buying that sweet toy car. But what we should really be focusing on is how LEGOS did the sexist thing. WHY ISNT THERE A BATGIRL LEGO SET OR A WONDERWOMAN LEGO SET?!? THATS WHAT IM WAITING FOR AND IM 13 YEARS OLD BUT I WOULD MOST DEFINATLEY BUY ANYTHING REGUARDING WONDERWOMAN. A little off topic. Companies would make more money mixing and matching their toys. Blue toy cars for girls Barbies, a cooking grill for boys. And then there are things that are for both genders like science sets or Doctor kits. In fact I think girls play more with Doctor kits than boys tbh. What one saying is, companies could expand more.
