GoldieBlox: "Engineering toy for girls" LAUNCH VIDEO

As soon as I saw this I was saddened by the fact that my niece is too old for this! (though she might be old enough to become an investor!)

1. It sounds like an interesting toy, but ...

... I can't help but wonder that, if parents would just stop treating their children as stereotypes, such toys would not need to exist.

I do like the idea of combining story and construction, though. It would be nice if it didn't have to rely on the fairy princess nonsense - girls mostly like that because it's marketed at them in an aggressive manner.
