It's more that these lines are marketed in such a way that shuts girls out more than it needs to, by having very few of the characters be female, and most of those few be presented as damsels in distress rather than active participants in the scenario. What could easily be a gender-neutral toy comes across as gender-specific.

Do girls think so differently from boys that they must have plastic brick building sets made of predominantly pink pieces? A little variety in color and the inclusion of pink pieces is good for creativity, but when does it go too far?
