* Invoked with Arcee, the most well-known female {{Transformer|s}}. Just so we know she's female, her paint job is bright [[TheNostalgiaChick piiiiiiiiiink]]. She was not the first pink female Transformer, though - that honor goes to Elita One, who debuted in [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers the cartoon]] before Arcee. However, if you ask someone to name a female Transformer, they'll most likely respond with [[TransformersBeastWars Blackarachnia]] or her.

** And [[http://modeltrains.about.com/od/collectingmodeltrains/tp/girls_set.htm model trains]]. In 1957 Lionel introduced The Girl's Set, a model train with engine and cars painted in pastel colors. Unfortunately they neglected to realize that 1) no boy would want to buy the set and 2) any girl interested in model trains is interested for the same reason as the boys--the realism of the models. Some retailers took to repainting the trains themselves just to move the product.

Ironically enough, the set's terrible sales resulted in rarity that now makes it very valuable in the collectors market.

Added DiffLines:

* Delightfully zig-zagged by The Original Pink Box website, which shows their toolboxes being used by pet groomers to aircraft mechanics, in dressing rooms and at racetracks. The ad copy neither says nor implies anything about gender, but the photographs depict women - exactly how competitors wordlessly assume their customers are men.

* On the one hand, Pink Franchise/PowerRangers always have their accessories colored pink. On the other hand, ''all'' Power Rangers always have their accessories in their color.

Since the show doesn't target girls but rather young ''boys'' who (are assumed to) think PinkIsForSissies, Pink Ranger-specific items like weapons and zords are often some other rangers' zords have, and even since then, [[http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Pink_Mecha it's rare.]]color with just a little pink trim. Rather than use a specific color to attract a certain audience, they ''avoid'' that specific color to avoid repelling the opposite audience.

Many people these days find this almost insulting, as if the color of the product is the sole turn off from women buying it, implying they can be that shallow. And it doesn't work in all cases. There are, however, some people who do buy pink products because they are pink (if you like pink, and pink is an option, then why not get the pink one), and some individuals and organizations have attempted to make the pink-female association an AppropriatedAppellation. Be proud to be a woman -- use the pink folding multitool with rhinestones! (Yes, that product existed.)

) Some women with hobbies involving hand tools (such as jewelry making) and men in the house can also find that pink, floral, or other "girly" appearance can help discourage tool theft by the male.
