Why Disney’s Lack of Rey Figures Hurts Boys and Girls

My friend Kari Maaren—author, filker and professor—has a challenge for Disney and the Disney Store: give us more Rey toys.

We have heard this argument, but Kari makes a point I have not yet heard before: It’s not just important for little girls to see themselves in toys, but little boys, too. Kids make up stories using action figures/dolls. (I know I did.) And play in all species is a way to practice skills one will need as an adult.

So a way for little boys to recognize women as equals and have agency is to incorporate them into their play, and therefore their stories, during formative years.

Please give her video a watch and share it!
