    'This toy is sexist': French feminists plant warnings in children's Christmas presents

    Feminists in France say they have secretly inserted tracts inside children's toys from Barbie dolls to plastic guns issuing a warning that "this toy is sexist".

    Hundreds of French girls and boys will open Christmas presents at the foot of the tree to find an unexpected accompanying note resembling those found in Chinese "fortune cookies".

    Except in this case, the message will neither provide instructions nor predict the future. It will read: "Warning, this toy is sexist:"

    The operation was launched by feminist group FièrEs, which said that it had inserted "around 500" such tracts into a range of toys in a dozen shops in Paris.

    "We targeted games that are emblematic of boy-girl stererotypes," said Delphine Asian, legal representative for the feminist group, who added: "We have caused no damage or ripped any plastic. We simply slipped the message in boxes, or in books."



    She said the idea was not to "make parents feel guilty", however. "We know well that parents follow the lists their children write and don't think they're doing any harm," she told Le Parisien newspaper.

    "But we want to raise awareness about the fact that toymakers and sellers play a part in the fact that not a single little girl asks Father Christmas for a sword."

    The tract invites parents to sign a petition and send it to those "responsible".

    The operation came a week after another group of feminists staged a publicity operation in a Toys "R" Us shop in Paris to protest against presenting toys in boy and girl sections.

    Roselyne Segalen, member of feminist group les Chiennes de garde, said: "Sexed toys like science kits for little boys and dining or makeup sets for little girls are a shocking regression. It sets a disastrous example and restricts children to stererotypes."

    But Franck Mathais of the Grande Récré toy chain, said: "Are the toys sexist or sexed (male or female)? It's not the same thing."

    "Things have evolved a lot in the past 20 years," he insisted, pointing out that among this year's most popular toys were rainbow loom bracelets – a surprise hit among boys.
