When asked whether boys and girls are either born or taught to like different kinds of toys, Americans in 2017 answered almost identically to those in 2015, with just over half saying that it’s a learned choice and approximately 30% saying it’s inborn. What has changed is how women think toys should be distributed among kids. In 2015, 36% of women felt that boys and girls should be raised with different toys and play activities; in 2017, only 26% of women feel that way. The numbers for men have remained relatively stable.
