English term or phrase: to match (context)
the title sequence features heart-warming little illustrations to match: think girlish clichés

should it be "think ABOUT girlish clichés"?

Spanish translation:ir a juego, combinar, concordar, coincidir
Explanation:
"...presenta figuritas encantadoras que van a juego: piense en clichés femeninos" (corazoncitos, florecitas, etc.)

"to match" here means that the illustrations match the context (of the article, perhaps).

The word ABOUT is not necessary here.

THINK
transitive verb
1 a : to form or have (as a thought) in the mind <few people think accurately -- and think things not words -- O.W.Holmes died 1935>

As a transitive verb, it doesn\'t need the words \"about\" or \"of\".

For example, the famous line \"think happy thoughts\" from Peter Pan :)
