If a parent took their children who can't yet read into Target and bought Barbie dolls for the child, think the kid knows if it came from a boy's aisle or girl's aisle? The kid can't read. They can however associate when their room is blue and the little girls room is pink. By the time the kids can read the signs, what Target does, doesn't matter one bit.
kids start asking for certain toys before reading as well.
