Agreed. And to my prior posting - it isn’t that a boy couldn’t watch it it’s just there are very few male characters to emulate. They are often the sidekicks or followers on these shows.I have to disagree. While shows like Doc, Sofia, Vampirina, etc. are great and my older son watched them a lot, they are marketed toward little girls. Just look at the merchandise for sale. You may find one t-shirt with Stuffy on it that is not pink / purple in a girls cut. Almost everything is tailored for girls.
Disney seemed to miss the mark recently creating Junior characters that would be marketed more to boys, or it is a conscious effort in their direction. Shows like Oso, Hanny Manny, Jake & the Neverland pirates, etc. did. And yes, little girls liked them too. But you would find more merchandise for BOTH boys and girls & they had Meet & Greets for them in the parks alongside Sofia & Doc. It was more balanced.
But new episodes died off years ago: Oso(2012), Hammy Manny (2013), Jake (2016), and they were pulled from the parks soon after. Any new shows Henry Hugglemonster, Miles (ended 2018), Liongaurd, etc. never seemed to get the push into the parks after years of success like a Fancy Nancy, who's first episode was just 8 months a go...
