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.
