Well, you wouldn't want to be reinforcing gender stereotypes by depriving the poor boy of pink nappies...

I dunno.

I hate that so many boy's toys are so violent. Like action man. You can't buy him without a weapon. Isaac doesn't own anything with a gun, sword, knife, or anything like that. I think it's really morbid thing to be giving a child! He has trains and building blocks and plastic food!

my sis also had to relent on the barbies as people bought her daughter ones with loads of clothes and accesories, and there isn't a real equivilant to encourage...Bratz are just repulsive
i agree entirely about the violent toys, we were never allowed any swords guns or violent looking toys, (or any violent video games too). and that is certainly something i will continue with for my household. i just dont think these things shoudl be seen in the context of fun or toys, they should be seen as serious dangerous weapons, as they are. they have no fun use.

Isaac was given a Buzz Lightyear, first thing I did was throw away the gun! Now he calls him Buzz Bee and flys him around the place.
