Newcastle MP Chi Onwurah has welcomed the announcement by Morrisons that it will remove signs for 'boys' and 'girls' toys, and phase out blue and pink.
Morrisons says it is planning to display toys according to price, and the changes will be in place next year.
Chi Onwurah - who has backed the 'Let Toys Be Toys' campaign - greeted the news as a "good step forward", but said there is still a long way to go with other retailers.
