Ads That Work

I couldn't find it online to share with you, but I just saw a commercial for the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Kitchen, and I was impressed to see that the commercial depicted two little boys and one little girl all playing with the kitchen together.


Granted, the kids these toys are aimed at are probably too young to distinguish between the various colorful bits of plastic they're playing with, unlike the little girls targeted by such genderiffic products as Hasbro's Rose Petal Cottage, but at least it's something.

Yeah, the commercial is super-biased, but I WANT THAT ROSE PETAL COTTAGE!
