At what age do girls start acting like girls? At 9 months

Scientists from the City University in London have found that nine-month-old babies choose their toys based on gender. So boys are more drawn to cars and soldiers, and girls to dolls and teddy bears. Thus, it can be argued that gender stereotypes are rooted almost from deep childhood itself.

Try this > If a nine-month-old baby is presented with a choice of seven different toys (which is exactly what was done in the study), the boy will choose a car, a spatula and a soccer ball, not paying attention to teddy bears, dolls, and a children's kitchen kit. As for girls, they are most interested in dolls, bears and miniature saucepans with spoons and plastic vegetables.

"Boys always prefer toys that move or move," says study author Sarah Amalie O'Toole Thommessen. “And girls choose beautiful and edible toys.”

But does this mean that boys and girls have innate preferences for certain sorts of objects? Or does parental influence affect the preferences of children at the earliest stage of development? Scientists believe that for such conclusions there is still too little data. More research needs to be done.
