Why do little girls play with dolls, while boys prefer plastic guns? As you might expect, gender stereotypes play a big role. Girls are expected to enjoy collecting, dressing, and caring for their dolls. And more often than not, the stereotype holds true. Most girls prefer toy dolls to toy guns.

Why is this? Well, that's simple — all children imitate their parents at one time or another when they are young. Of course, when they grow into teens the process often reverses itself as kids embrace and assert their individuality. But when they are young they tend to mimic their parents. Girls mimic their mothers and boys imitate their fathers.
