What the Research Says: Gender-Typed Toys

The holiday season is a time of year when many families and programs are thinking about new toys. But what makes a good toy for a young child? NAEYC asked one researcher about what her work tells us about toys, children, and play.

Judith Elaine Blakemore is professor of psychology and associate dean of Arts and Sciences for Faculty Development at Indiana University−Purdue University in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her primary research interest is the development of gender roles.
