Speaking with TIME, Mattel spokesperson Jess Weiner said the new range was a response to feedback from kids and parents.

“From the kids, they did not want their toys to be labelled… they don’t want rules set around their play,” Weiner said.

“And what we heard from parents was an increasing concern about genderising toys.”
