I think the classics would be G.I. Joe and Barbie.
Having boys playing within the context of war and conquest.
Having the girls cooking, cleaning, shopping and looking pretty and anorexic.

Another even far more disturbing way toys manipulate and cripple young children mentally is watching a young girl who is probably not even in kindergarten, walking around holding a doll of a baby. I think it is sick honestly..... To have a kid who herself is not long out of the womb, un-conciously being taught to crave a child of their own.
