Gendered toy marketing, word cloud edition.

Hot damn, I love word clouds. This blogger create these based on two lists of products marketed as “girls” and “boys” toys, and the words used in television commercials advertising them.

I’ll quote my homegirl Eliza (age 10) as an appropriate response from this letter (which is amazing, by the way):

Hey I’m a Girl, and I HATE dolls! I also hate Barbies, pink, my little ponies, and glitter is okay I guess. But I don’t love it like boys think all girls do. But that’s just my opinion. [...] I HATE pink. I despise it. HACK See I spat on it. That’s how much I hate pink.
