Any toy model takes pride of place in the collection And at the same time, the overwhelming majority of girls prefer dolls - but boys look at cars with delight: auto pictures.
A child, surrounded by cars, can imitate races for hours, start up his car on the most difficult "tracks" of the apartment, push cars in accidents and drive them to the "car service". What is the reason for such a love of little boys for cars?
From children's toys to adult cars - shaping gender preferences
Of course, the first thing is that the cars are bright - and move, while making a lot of unfamiliar sounds. Any child is just beginning to comprehend the world, so cars leave a consistently vivid impression. This applies to real cars passing by and carries over to toy models.
But at the same time, boys are much more interested in cars than girls. No matter how society changes, traditionally the role of a man is to expand the surrounding space, move forward, strive for superiority. Cars - at first toys, and then real ones, become an excellent way to show and develop these qualities. The machine becomes a means of self-expression for a boy and a man - the personification of his "I", an important detail of the image and character.
As for little girls, most of them are focused on social interaction from an early age - hence the games with family and everyday adult life. Most often, girls use cars in their games only as a means of transportation for dolls - without paying special attention to the car itself. Fascination with cars is good for a kid for many reasons. First of all, it forms his character, helps to form the first ideas about style. Toy car games perfectly develop children's fine motor skills. Studying the device of the car, over time he will become interested and learn to understand real cars.
