Reader: My Little Pony has already had a makeover

Since Hasbro's Easy-Bake Oven is finally getting a makeover so that little boy cooks won't have to use pink and purple models, Jenn Wohletz thinks it's past time to update other girl-centric toys to reflect reflect American society's changing views on stereotypical gender roles.

Toys like My Little Pony, for example.

Says Amelia:

My Little Ponies certainly did have a makeover. The new TV series is entertaining unlike the old one. It's still a girly show, but now the ponies have personalities and different interests.

And even before that makeover, there were plenty of males interested in My Little Pony. Calling all Bronies!
