Letters to Santa are already en route to the North Pole, filled with requests for the top toys of 2014. No doubt that Elsa and Barbie will be in high demand, but many kids are hoping for something that isn't a pink, sparkly, blonde-haired doll.
Thankfully, those popular toys are not the only options. We looked to A Mighty Girl, a site whose mission is to raise "smart, confident, and courageous girls," for inspiration in finding toys that encourage creativity and support kids as they acquire new skills.
After all, Toys R Us and other big box stores are moving away from the "pink aisle" and the "blue aisle," so it's probably time for Santa to head in that direction, too.
