This is an interesting trope. It applys to me very well. I am a girl, and my favorite toy is the stuffed animal. I loved them when I was little, and I still enjoy them as an adult. There is something about them that is so appealing. Females are steriotypicly nurturing. Little girls may pick this up either naturally or by following a mother's example. Some girly toys like dolls and stuffed animals apeal to the nurturing side of one's personality.
