(13 ABC) – Should restaurants still offer “boy toys” and “girl toys” when serving up chicken nuggets and fries? More than a dozen Michigan lawmakers say no. A House Resolution introduced Wednesday, Nov. 28 urges food establishments and franchises to stop gender classification of kid’s meal toys.State Rep. Leslie Love, D-Detroit, is the primary sponsor. The resolution has 14 co-sponsors. “Often, the designated ‘boy toys’ are action figures or building toys; typically in primary colors, whereas ‘girl toys’ are often stuffed

animals and are usually in a pastel color scheme,’’ the resolution states. “This is a significant issue as billions of these meals are sold every year and this practice can influence and limit children’s imaginations and interests by promoting some toys as only suitable for girls and others only for boys.’’ Love also asks that copies of the resolution be sent to the CEO of the boards of directors of major fast food chains in Michigan.
