Children's Gender-Based Reasoning about Toys.
Martin, Carol Lynn; And Others
Child Development, v66 n5 p1453-71 Oct 1995
Three studies examined how preschool children used gender-based reasoning in making judgments about toy preferences for themselves and for others. Found that children used gender labels to guide their own preferences and their expectations of others. Even with very attractive toys, children liked the toys less if they were labeled as being for the other sex. (MDM)
