Toy Preference of Boy & Girl Monkeys.

Texas A&M University psychologist Gerianne Alexander and colleagues discovered that just like little boys and girls, male and female monkeys like to play with different toys.

Like little boys, some male monkeys moved a toy car along the ground. Like little girls, female monkeys closely inspected a doll. Males also preferred balls while females fancied cooking pots. Both were equally interested in neutral objects such as a picture book and a stuffed dog.
