In todays SVD.se I read about a girl named McKenna that started a petition since she couldn’t find any gender neutral toy kitchen’s to her brother. 44 000 people signed the petition. The toy manufacturer she wanted to change called her to a meeting, according to SVD.se. I like when people do things to get others to change to the better.
In this case however, there are already toy kitchens that are gender neutral at other manufacturers. I have seen them on Formex and IKEA. I just think it is the toy stores that do not order them. I saw manufacturers at Formex that actually offered gender neutral toy kitchens. Just saying. There are. Toy stores just need to order them. But then again, I am in Sweden, Europe. It was a European manufacturer.
Also IKEA also has gender neutral toy kitchens! They are available in many countries.
Some years ago some scientist got the noble prize for the see through bendable solar cell material, according to Dagens energi.
I see many areas where a see through cell could be implemented. In the windows of buildings would be nice. Imagine beeing able to make the whole house a big solarcell? Wouldn’t that be interesting. The material cotains only carbon. Maybe we can all live in glass houses if we wanted to, houses with total contact with the woods in the future? Well, maybe to many birds would fly into the house? Perhaps it is good if it isn’t just see through material. However I see many possibilities with see through materials.
