Some gender roles established before baby can crawl

April 16, 2010

A study in Britain included 83 children aged 9 months to 3 years. When presented seven different toys, boys as young as 9-months-old chose cars, construction vehicles and soccer balls. The girls were most interested dolls, teddy bears and cooking sets.

Gender-specific preferences became even more pronounced after age 2.

The study is being presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference.
