Latest Blog Posts

Here at the Pigtail Pals blog we cover all sorts of advice for parents from issues with sexism to ideas to help you empower your child no matter their age to parenting tips regarding toy safety, developmental disabilities, an entire section on Autism and even advocating for gender neutrality rather than forcing ‘boys to be boys’ and ‘girls to be girls’.

We are aiming to get people (and companies) to rethink what it means to be girly one gift idea at a time, this includes slowly rewriting our guides to take out the stereo typical girl toys and a greater understanding that boys gifts can be great gifts for girls too! These toy companies and society in general really need to stand up and stop making every thing for girls pink princess themed. Our girls deserve better and they shouldn’t be limited and thrown into a box. And to the same time our boys need to stop being told that they have to act a certain way to in order to be a ‘boy’ or ‘male’ or ‘manly’.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with girly type of stuff if your daughter actually prefers it but too often we force little girls into ‘girly’ things when they actually prefer the cool ride on toy their brother got.

If interested in finding the best toys and gifts for your kiddo you can either scroll down to see our latest reviews or head back to the Pigtail Pals homepage where they are all listed there!

We are here to help so if there’s anything you would like us to cover feel free to reach out via our contact page.
