Growing up my favorite toys were my Wonder Woman and my Sabrina, of Charlie’s Angels fame, dolls. Barbie, with her blonde hair and million outfits couldn’t hold my attention for too long, and forget pretending to be a princess and tea parties.
Second to my dolls’ crime-solving adventures, were my books and a desire to play sports. So I totally get Riley as she so eloquently puts it, “Some girls like superheroes, some girls like princesses! Some boys like superheroes, some boys like princesses! So why do all the girls have to buy pink stuff and all the boys have to buy different color stuff?”
Tell ‘em girl!
