It's not a new idea, but it's a new display at Harrods. Supporters say it's a good thing because it keeps kids from thinking they have to play with certain toys because they're marketed for boys or girls. Critics say it won't make a difference because most kids already know what they want before they visit the store; they'll just have to look for their toys in a different area.
We don't know yet whether there'll be a significant effect on how (or what) toys are sold. But we are curious about whether you think a gender-neutral toy department would make a difference to your younger brother or sister.
