Oh no, the point is there. If you like it, it's okay to buy it, and buy it, and buy it and buy it, and then buy some more. Doesn't matter if it teaches something to your children you don't want them learning, especially if you aren't even aware that it's doing it. Kids are most definitely NOT being marketed to, and as parents we are not being egged into submission by forces outside our brains and homes (as if, of course this is happening). Children are being boxed further and further into narrow straight jackets of what is acceptable play for their sex (have you BEEN in toys R us lately?), but it's okay IF they LIKE it, because well, that's what they like! There is no influence from society playing a part in it, right? I mean, they are born that way, right? yeah, right.
