The Effect of Boys' or Girls' Toys on Sex-Typed Play in Preadolescents.
Karpoe, Kelly P.; Olney, Rachel L.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v9 n4 p507-18 Apr 1983
One study of 9-12 year olds found that only girls showed toy preferences among a variety of sex typed and neutral toys, but that both sexes interacted differently with masculine and feminine toys. In another study, play constructions and stories reflected the gender association of toys provided, rather than child's sex. (AOS)
