Today we went to McDonalds, I took two of my children (If you read this G, I apologise but you were out) One girl and one boy. It had already been decided by my son that at 12 he has no use for a you that comes with the meal so was happy to ask for a Hello Kitty for his little sister.
"Would you like the girls toy or a boys toy?"
I was asked
"A girls toy or a boy toy, you get a choice"
Now I've already put my foot through the TV twice after seeing the McDonalds advert, what I really didn't expect was McDonalds servers to reinforce the gender stereotype of cars for boys and Hello Kitty for girls, and yet they did.
I asked for two Hello Kitty toys and asked the server why she couldn't just ask if we wanted Hot Wheels or Hello Kitty but she refused to answer.
McDonalds, I'm really disappointed in your gender stereotypes. Why can't you just let toys be played with by children? Do not put YOUR ideas of what toy a child should play with into the heads of children,
I'm NOT loving that.
How about you? Have you experienced this in a McDonalds? Let me know
