    Your sentences should be

    1 Dolls are labeled "Girls' Toys".

    2 Toy cars are labeled "Boys' Toys".

    The other two sentences are confusing.

    The verb '(to) label' has three structures :

    1 verb+object Example : He carefully labeled each bottle with the contents and the date.

    2 verb+object+complement Example : The parcel was clearly labeled "Fragile!'.

    3 verb+object+as Example : He was labeled as a traitor by his former colleagues. (this sentence can also be written without 'as'.)

    I would say say either- I would say "labeled as"
