Gift Ideas for Girls - Holiday Gift Guide 2012


Best Actresses of the 1990s Paper Dolls

Does she like playing dress-up but doesn't have access to all the nifty clothes? Does she feel nostalgic for the 90's film era? Does she prefer the mobility and convenience of paper dolls to the rigidity and space-consumption of porcelain and plastic versions? This book of ten Oscar-winning movie starlets from the 90's, like Jessica Lange, Hilary Swank and Jodie Foster, may be the perfect thing for her. The collection of wardrobe changes includes the actress' Academy Award dresses along with costumes of some of their most famous film roles.

Paper dolls?! You see, my prediction was I was right! Why must gift guides bring out the sexism in our society?

This is incredibly sexist.. you might consider simply doing one holiday gift guide by movie genre rather than creating a gendered list.

Sorry. You lost ALL credibility when I saw you had an iPad Mini listed under the girls section. First, it's incredibly overpriced and second it's certainly 3rd or 4th in the 7 inch tablets. The Nexus 7 is by FAR a better product. It's much cheaper, runs full Android 4.2 and it doesn't tie you into iTunes like a brainless robot and let's you use the device as YOU see fit which is completely opposite of what Apple represents.

First of all, "girl" means "female child". Using "girls" to mean "young women" infantilizes them. The female equivalent of "guy" is "gal". Secondly, do you really need to cultivate a gender-based divide by making your first recommendation doll and fashion themed? Find alternate categories for "Girls" and "Guys" please.

Oh my gosh why are people so SENSITIVE?? These comments are absolutely absurd. Yeah, the paper dolls are a little bit ridiculous, but do you REALLY think that a guy is going to want Twilight Body Lotion? Geez, cry me a freaking river.

The fact that more people aren't "sensitive" to this type of outlook is what makes it so damaging. If the media is constantly telling girls and women that they should be primarily concerned with their appearance, then they'll embrace roles similar to the protagonist of the "Twilight" series you referenced: passive with no discernible agency.
