I saw this old ad for Legos and thought how wonderful that the girl is in regular play clothes, enjoying a non-gendered toy.  No princess outfit, tea sets, glitter or dolls.  The caption says it all for me, "What is it is beautiful."

Hi Lela,
It's from the late 70's or early 80's. Feels like we're going backwards...

It think it is innocent - the way childhood should be.

Now look at the newest availability for lego! Where did that innocence, no gendering go?
