Women be shoppin’!

At least that’s what Milton Bradley and other game manufacturers must think. I was in Toys R Us earlier this week looking around. Brought back a lot of memories going down the aisles and looking at all the new toys they have. I had to go by the board games and check out the wares. This is what I found…

They will sell our girls the same old regular shit with a coat of pink paint and make money hand over fist! Worst part about it, if I was a pre-teen, I’d be DYING for that pink Ouija Board! SMH @ gender roles/stereotypes.

    this reminds me of the mid 90’s when companies started releasing ‘afrocentric’ products that were just the same old regular shit with a non matching ass kinte cloth print on it.

  3. I think that a lot of companies did a “pink” campaign for breast cancer month. Now I’m not sure if these game companies participated in that but, a lot of other companies did that.

    See, I don’t think this is BC stuff because the names of the games appeal to girls (like “chic”, “princess” and “girl talk”). Besides, I don’t know if teen girls playing twister are really the target audience for BC Awareness (although maybe they ought to be).

    the boxes have white girls on them so its not “women” as much as it is white women. i wonder what color the black girl products would be. im guessing something in a kool aid red/magenta.
