For the little princess in the family we have great feminine outfits like Butterfly Fairy, Sleeping Beauty, Ballerina and Nurse’s uniform. Why not add a medical case for that extra touch of authenticity.

The boys are catered for too, with great Doctor, Policeman & Fireman uniforms, not to mention fantastic Pirate and Knight costumes. All these can be combined with a range of accessories so your child will really look the part.
Because, apparently, boys can't do ballet, and girls can't be doctors.

You can contact them via the page here if you'd like to express your displeasure, and pass it on.

I remember back in the old days (which for me were the 1990s) ELC was all about no guns and afaik no gender bias. Have they been bought out in the new century or are they just weak willed and bowing to marketing guff?
