From toy-maker GoldieBlox (a company that's all about girl empowerment) to the redesigned Barbie and the classic girl's guide The Care and Keeping of You, this list rounds up some of the most awesome toys for girls. Gone are the days of teaching young ladies that their destinies lie in the kitchen. Today, little girls know they can grow up to be anything, especially engineers, scientists, and explorers. These toys are perfect for feminists looking to fan the flames of a little girl's passion for learning or teach them about body positivity.

Whether you want to encourage a love of math, science, storytelling, history, or music, these are the most fun toys on the market that don't come with all that unnecessary gender stereotyping. From science kits and to build-your-own-story games, to lego sets and an actually fun way to learn math, there's something here for every girl.

Vote up the best, most creative feminist gifts, and be inspired to give a young girl in your life a toy that will empower and inspire her.
