Sometimes it can be hard to find good, empowering toys for girls. Both girls and boys are often taught to stick to a certain type of toy and aisles in stores that are set for them by color. However that is starting to change as more people who want to increase options for girls speak up and turn to crowdfunding efforts to create their own products.

Two recent sets of toys made for girls stand out as ways we can change the tone in the industry and offer more empowering options. On the following slides, learn about the new IAmElemental set of action figures pictured here and new sets of armor that you can use to get your Barbie ready for battle!
