My Superhero niece
For Christmas, my 4 year old niece asked for only one thing from Santa. She wanted superhero underoos. My sister said that she's been obsessed with Superheros and villains. She can name every single Superhero from the Marvel comics franchise and their powers. When I looked for Superhero presents for her, I quickly realized that they don't make them for little girls, it's geared more towards little boys. It's interesting to me that even at a young age, society (toy industry, fashion trends, retailers) dictates what girls and boys should like and play with. Why don't we just let the kids choose? So all of her presents from us were from the boys section. This didn't matter to her, she loved every single one of them.
