How many "girl" stuffies are there? I ask since I will play with 3 girls, and they will all want a girl.

Just trying to guess my grief.

I have tried that argument in the past. Doesn't always work.

If there is a backstory or if they use pronouns in the story it doesn't work.

I think it's half and half, 3 girl 3 boy stuffies.

*edit - Thea, Flops and Piggle are female.
Lumpy, Lionel, and Stitch are male.

It seems like they use their name to make them appear neutral, but I wonder if there would have been a backlash if someone with three boys had asked the same question.

Not from me.

My oldest would probably play a boy stuffie, but I would get the business.

We made it through base Mice and Mystics with 2 girls, but my youngest is 5 and she will want in this time.

If you get either of the Mice and Mystics expansions you do get more Female characters.

Stuffed Fables has 3 female and 3 male characters, but their gender is never the subject of any story they are just referred to as he or she. We also have 2 additional downloadable characters that have no gender assigned to them (or names) and blank character sheets to customize your game. The idea is to be as accommodating as possible.

You can see a discussion starting now over the " negative" names of Piggle and Lumpy, given they have genders . . .it's unavoidable. Prepare for it.

Plaid hat as a company is very good about trying to be a gender neutral/equal as possible. I remember in an episode of the podcast years ago someone emailed them about it and koby explained his process in rule book writing.

It's worth noting that the rules refer the player as she and her.

For you (as you said) it might be worth nothing.
For women and girls, it might be worth a lot, for it doesn't happen that often.

Like in the case of the OP; His kids are girls and people (whether boys or girls) need the feeling that they can relate, connect and be included in/to things. Having the "she" in the rulebooks can help with that.(not in all, because without "he's" in there we'd have an opposite situation)
So (in my opinion; especially, but not solely) in games played with kids, it's very important.

So, if it's not important to you, that's great. That way the peeps who think it is important can have a "she" in the rulebooks.

Thanks.

I said "noting", not "nothing", and I completely agree with you

Turns out that “noting” there was no “h” there is quite important as well. 😃
My bad.

Cheers mate.
