Washington: French feminist group FierEs have included warning pamphlets saying "this toy is sexist," in the children's Christmas toys from plastic guns to Barbie dolls.

According to the Telegraph, around 500 of such pamphlets were inserted into a range of toys in about a dozen shops in Paris, Fox News reported.

Delphine Asian, a legal representative for the feminist group, said that they targeted games that are emblematic of boy-girl stereotypes and they caused no damage or ripped any plastic.

Asian further added that the purpose of the operation was not to make parents feel guilty, but to raise awareness about the fact that toymakers play a part in the fact that not a single little girl asks Father Christmas for a sword.
