Goldie Blox reached their funding goal and are now open for pre-orders!
I tend to have a problem with the pinkification of girlhood. It’s not that I hate the color (I’m actually learning that a nice hot pink can be good for my skin tone) it’s that usually pinkification means either a) that this toy comes in FOR GIRLS or FOR BOYS or b) that the girls get the dumbed down/less educational version. A good toy teaches you something by the time you’re done playing with it.
Goldie Blox may be pink but it fits into neither of those categories (well, I hope. I haven’t played with the thing). It may be pink but it’s fun and educational and hopefully will inspire a new generation of girls to take on butt-kicking, high-paying, world-shaping jobs. So lets get on with inspiring our daughters!
For the older set check out Danica McKellar’s books on math and adolescence. Maybe you should show her some Wonder Years first so she can fall in love with Danica via Winnie. That’s a pretty fool proof plan.
