Frey, Karin S.; Ruble, Diane N.
Developmental Psychology, v28 n4 p714-21 Jul 1992
Children between 5 and 10 years of age watched boys and girls endorse toys of varying attractiveness and then play with the toys. Boys with gender constancy spent more time than other boys in playing with unattractive sex-typed toys. Among girls, toy play was related to the toy's attractiveness. (BC)
