Here's a little education for ya: toys are actually more divided by gender now than they were for decades. In the mid-'70s in particular, gender-specific toys were incredibly rare. I'm assuming that was before you were born?

Vegita-san is 40 years old, so he was born in the 70's.

The late 70s.
Right around the time places like Toys R Us and Kay Bee were putting in Pink Aisles for the feminine dolls, and darker fixtures for their masculine dolls.

Which was always a marketing change for the sake of change.
And a dumb one, in my opinion.

huh, one would think the reasons behind it and when it started with "boys VS girls toy aisles" would be more common knowledge by now. it's been featured in loads of Did You Know? videos and touched upon in Adam Ruins Everything when Nintendo wanted to sell the NES in the toy aisle instead of electronics and it was already divided as a Boy VS Girl sections.

Not everyone educate themselves with YouTube and so-called "Interner-personas".
Gladly.

I think the thing I would agree with is getting rid of the boys/girls designation for toys, and just mix them together into one big toy isle. I hate when stuff is made for males/for females because it should be for anyone, and I'm talking about many things in general too, not just toys. (However, I do believe hard separations should exist, like with bathrooms and locker rooms, places where privacy should be paramount and safety is a priority.)

As such, I do not believe in gender, only biological sex. 'Gender' is little more then stereotypical gender roles and how male/females should 'act.' One cannot change their biological sex through surgery or hormones, and one should respect that not everyone accepts the idea of 'trans,' which relies on the idea of 'gender' and not biological sex.
