Step 1: Read and discuss the Toy Assignemnt Articles. As
you discuss these articles, pay special attention to the
following topics and issues:
• Toys that may encourage violence and aggression
• Toys that may promote pro-social behavior
• Gender differences in toy selection and preference
and/or social encouragement of gender-specific toys
• Cultural influences on toys
Create a brief (one paragraph) written summary of the
main findings from these articles, as they relate to the
bulleted topics and issues.
Step 2: Within your Learning Team, investigate popular
toys on the market today. You can use the internet or visit
a toy store to do this research. See if you can find toys that
fall into the four categories above; that is, those that may
promote aggression, those that may promote pro-social
behavior; those that seem to encourage or discourage

gender stereotyping; and those that seem to encourage or
discourage cultural differences and/or stereotyping.
Identify and investigate a minimum of four toys, one from
each category. Discuss your observations about these four
categories. You may want to use the following questions
as guidance for your team’s analysis of the toys
• How do toys influence behavior, self-concept, and
identity?
• What did you observe concerning positive and negative
gender stereotyping?
• How has your research on toys and gender influenced
your views on the relative influences of environment and
heredity on gender and identity development in children?
• From your review of the literature and your examination
of actual toys on the market, do you believe that some toys
may increase the likelihood of aggressive behavior in
children? Under what circumstances might this occur?
Explain.
• How has your research on toys and aggression influenced
your views on the relative influences of environment and
heredity on aggressive behavior in children?
• Do any of the toys that you have examined promote
stereotypes? Do any discourage stereotypes? Explain.
• Do any of the toys reflect or indicate cultural and ethnic
stereotypes? What effect can you see this having on the
development of self-concept and identity?
• How do toys that promote pro-social behavior benefit
development during childhood?

Create a 12- to 15-slide PowerPoint presentation of your
findings including detailed speakers notes. Your
presentation should summarize the toys (minimum of
four) you investigated and present your findings on how
toys influence development. Conclude your presentation
with a discussion of the following:
• After evaluating toys, what would you advise parents
concerning how toys can influence the development of
their children? What would you want them to be aware of
and why?
• Have your views about the relative influences of heredity
and environment on human development changed in any
way? For example, are there things you once attributed to
heredity that you now believe to be more strongly
influenced by the environment, or vice versa?
Format your presentation according to APA standards.
