“The Big Elf” President Obama delivers a holiday message on toy gender stereotypes (VIDEO)

Two weeks ago President Barack Obama joined First Lady Michelle Obama at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. to deliver about 1,000 toys from the President’s staff to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots campaign, an annual holiday toy drive.

While the annual event may not seem that notable, President Obama’s decision to send a message about breaking down traditional stereotypes about gender stereotypes regarding toys certainly was noteworthy.

Watch for yourselves.

Though I’ve been a frequent critic of President Obama, I have to give him credit for this one small gesture to try to break down outdated gender stereotypes.
