Parents are being urged to boycott shops selling pink toys and gifts by a campaign group.

Pinkstinks says the "pinkification" of little girls causes them to choose less challenging careers and pass up opportunities as they grow up.

Polly Toynbee and Justice Minister Bridget Prentice are among those backing the campaign.
