Turbo Heather: for boys or girls?
Egads! We spent last night planning the cardboard fort for this week’s birthday party. After much debate, we only managed to lay out the skeletal form. Tonight we’ll do the cutting, taping and riveting.
So, in lieu of providing you thought-provoking content, behold Turbo Heather, an “xtreme radio controlled southern belle.”
Yes, it’s a spoof commercial. Draw your own conclusions about gender-branded toys. Is this toy making radio-controled vehicles appealing to girls or making dolls appealing to boys?
