This 5 and a half year old girl loves dancing, princesses and rainbows, however she also loves cars and robots.
She recently stopped playing cars and robots, and when asked why, she said because people at school laughed at her for playing with 'boy' things

Her mum +Andrea Phillips asked
"Tell us about girls who make robots and cars and bridges. Girls who build rockets, girls who can make and build and invent -- girls who have grand adventures, but who can still go dancing, and still braid their hair, and still wear pink. Tell us about you. I know you're out there."

People have responded!

She has since posted an update at
