Gender bending is sometimes a form of social activism undertaken in response to assumptions, over-generalizations about genders, or transphobia. Some gender benders identify with the gender assigned them at birth, but “challenge” the norms of that genderthrough androgynous behavior and atypical gender roles. from Wikipedia

These dolls for boys include a child-sized matching-piece of adventure gear. for the child too, giving them an instant sidekick for adventures! The idea is that this connectedness deepens the imaginative play experience.
