Would you like to attend this year’s Building Our Future Girls and Toys Conference? This year’s topic is “Do the toys girls play with as children have an impact on the professional, academic and personal choices they make as adult women?”
We have sent out invitations to a select group of industry thought leaders. We only have 20 seats at the table so there are many great people we were not able to attend. We do, however, always like to have a place at the table for someone who has a passion for the topic. So, if you would like to attend, you can reach me by clicking here and pressing on the contact tab.
Some very serious people feel that one of the reasons women do not go into the sciences or engineering is because girl’s toys are too much about nurturance and not enough about challenge. We are going to consider that question as well as the basis for (and the need for) gender identification in packaging and product placement, the use of color as a gender designator, the roll of dolls and actions figures and much more.
This year’s conference, which I am putting on in conjunction with Women and
Toys, is sponsored by the Spielwarenmesse Nuremberg Toy Fair, the Toy Industry Association, the Strong National Museum of Play, Hit Entertainment’s Angelina Ballerina, Highlights Magazine and Think Fun.
