    Here is a list from NAEYC:

    You might want to also include in your research toys that aren't gendered.

    Good luck on the paper.

    Hello Mary,  I would use NAEYC as your resource for guidelines, though I think you might be struggling a bit more with how to write a succinct essay.  Be sure to start with an introduction, which I believe should include WHY guidelines are important (i.e., developmentally appropriate, parent/teacher resource, safety, etc.) and where to find them.  In the body of your essay you can expound on each item, though I would not include an actual list of guidelines.  You might want to give a few examples.  Last, be sure to include a conclusion, which basically reiterates what is said in the introduction.  Hope this helps- Gina James
