They spent millions trying to sell their product to girls. They only needed to change 1 tiny thing.

This comic perfectly illustrates the mistake many toy companies continue to make when targeting products to young girls.

They spent millions trying to sell their product to girls. They only needed to change 1 tiny thing.

Now isn't that a novel idea? Instead of dressing toys up to be stereotypically "girly," why not look for ways to help girls (and boys) see themselves in toys so they're more relatable? Representation is important, even when it comes to something as small as a Lego character. Thankfully, the artist behind this wonderful comic, Maritsa Patrinos, isn't the only one who thinks toys like Legos don't need to center on shopping, cooking, or pink for girls to enjoy them.


Even President Obama thinks toys should just be toys!

The president and first lady were helping sort toys at a toy drive when this wonderful moment happened:

Instead of putting the basketball in the "boys" bin, President Obama dropped it in the "girls" bin — just like that!


And the ball wasn't even pink!

T-ball!? Score another one for girls who like sports!

If you think the GIFs are magical (which ... they are) you'll no doubt love the video. Check out President Obama at the Toys for Tots toy drive.

And remember, every kid is unique. So while it's totally OK for girls to like princesses and for boys to like trucks, toys should be available for any and everyone to enjoy, no matter their gender.

True

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Since three coronavirus vaccines received emergency use authorization from the FDA early in 2021, the question of how to get a high percentage of the population vaccinated has haunted public health officials. As hospitals across the country fill with severely ill COVID-19 patients, the vast majority of whom are unvaccinated, the question remains.

A funeral home in North Carolina is taking a unique tack in advocating for vaccinations, one that's striking and to-the-point.

A truck advertised as Wilmore Funeral Home drove around Bank of America Stadium before the Carolina Panthers football game in Charlotte over the weekend, and it had a simple message: "Don't get vaccinated."
