Now, now, they didn't actually mention house cleaning did they?

It's a step in the right direction. But they are all disturbingly symmetrical and slim and good-looking.

The multiple hairstyles didn't seem to include an alopecia option. And while dolls have had limbs ripped off by creative children since forever, I don't see a wheelchair accessory. (I do expect disabilities to be recognised, and I hope I've just missed it. Body types ... not hopeful.)

Verdict: more inclusive than before.

I believe that separating colors into girls and boys are stereotypes from the past. Although I try to be neutral. This is the norm in our society.

For example, when parents make a baby shower to find out the sex of their child, they choose blue if there should be a boy and pink if there should be a girl. Because it's easier, and everyone knows what color which gender will mean.

But sometimes I hate it, especially in toy stores. Most toys are either pink or blue. It seems that there are no more colors left. Although other colors are still found in boys' toys. But when I go into the girls' department, I get into the realm of pink. It makes my eyes hurt. To find a toy of another color you need to try hard. My daughter generally loves green, so every time finding a toy for her is a challenge.
