Hasbro Didn’t Intend to Misgender Jurassic World Toys, Promises Dinos Will Henceforth Be Clever Girls

Raptor high five!



After being asked by Yahoo Movies to comment on their decision to gender-swap Jurassic World action figures like Blue the raptor, Indominus Rex, and the T-Rex, Hasbro has promised to rectify the error in toy descriptions. According to Yahoo,

[A spokesperson] said the switch “was an oversight” and that Hasbro is “in the process of updating the language with the correct information.

Kudos to Hasbro for seeing validity in fans’ concerns and taking a step (however minute) to increase representation in toys—now if retailers can just avoid putting Jurassic World merchandise in the “boys'” section, we’d be in raptor-business.
