Three sisters to expand Regent Arcade toy shop Toys to Grow to their hometown of Winchcombe – Gloucestershire Echo

Children in Winchcombe will soon have a new favourite shop.

Three sisters are expanding their toy shop to their hometown of Winchcombe following their success in the Regent Arcade.

Born and bred in the small Cotswold town, sisters Sarah Price, Melanie Fisher and Laura Davis are now all mothers and originally set up Toys to Grow in 2013 because they found it difficult to find good toys in town.

Just over two years later, the shop is thriving and after winning £3,000 from the Echo’s window display competition, the sisters have decided to put the profits to use.

The sisters are now in the process of setting up their second shop in Bull Lane, Winchcombe.

It will be bigger than the Cheltenham premises, and will even have an area dedicated to keeping children entertained whilst their parents browse.

Although the shop is in its early stages, the siblings have been busy painting the walls and preparing to open next month.

The Winchcombe shop, just like its other half in Cheltenham, will sell toys that are both traditional and educational.

Sarah, 39, said: “At the time of setting up our first shop, Winchcombe hadn’t developed as much as it has now, so Cheltenham seemed the obvious choice.

“But Winchcombe is growing, especially with the new estates and the new supermarket Budgens.”

She added: “We find that we have a lot of followers from Winchcombe because we’re local, so this seemed like the next logical step.

“We’re confident that it will do well. It will give Winchcombe residents more choice and it will give them another reason to stay local.

“We’re all very excited, especially because it’s our hometown.”

The sisters plan to work two days a week in each shop, so that none of them miss out.

Toys to Grow will have an opening night on May 6, which will feature nibbles, drinks and promotions.

White House Sponsoring Conference on Breaking Down Gender Stereotypes in Kids’ Toys, Media – TheBlaze.com

Original article

Children are learning gender stereotypes early from the toys they play with and the media they consume, according to the White House, which is sponsoring a conference Wednesday on the issue.

“There should be more boys art supplies and more engineering building blocks for girls,” said Tina Tchen, executive director of the White House Council on Women and Girls. “Parents can vote with their wallets to stop gender stereotypes.”

The White House is holding the “Conference on Helping our Children Explore, Learn, and Dream Without Limits: Breaking Down Gender Stereotypes in Media and Toys.”

Tchen told reporters on a conference call previewing the event that this is part of President Barack Obama’s effort to promote more women entering the fields of science, technology, engineering and math[1] — and to encourage more men to become nurses and teachers.

“The toys children play with and the media they consume play a big role in the life they pursue,” Tchen said. “This will be a diverse room of a lot of people with innovative ideas to break down gender stereotypes in toys and media.”

Research shows that major gaps exist in the media boys and girls watch, read or listen to, and also the toys they play with, said Jess Weiner, adjunct professor of the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California.

“We want to see more powerful female superheroes, and more toys and videogames that appeal to both boys and girls,” Weiner said.
