Gender stereotypes surrounding toys are deeply entrenched, so when a dad shared a Facebook video showing how he felt when his son asked him for a doll, it was bound to get a debate flowing.

Mikki Willis's son received two of the same presents for his birthday, so Willis offered to take him to exchange the duplicate for a replacement of his choosing.

After looking round the toy shop Willis's son returned with a Little Mermaid Ariel doll in his hand.

Willis holds the doll up to the camera and asks: "How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?"

Well, how do you think he reacted?
