    I'll never buy anything 'branded' as long as DS is too small to make a choice. I don't.mind character toys and the like, I just hate things like packets of crayons with a picture of the wiggles on them so you pay double, or those foam fold out couches with Disney characters.

    Any weapons, weapons are not toys!
    Transformers (lookin at you London )
    Barbie, bratz..those ones!
    Anything that makes an annoying noise.
    Anything that looks poor quality.

    No Bratz or similar dolls. This is fine, because she prefers Marvel dolls anyway.
    No makeup kits.
    None of the Fur-Real or Zuuzuu pets things, simply because I despise the random, loud noises they make. Also, I heartily disapprove of Fur-Real's "teacup puppies in a handbag" toys.

    Other than that, she can play with anything. Her toy room is a giant bookshelf with her mini-daybed under the window for reading, a giant lego box, a storage unit with a pull-out tub for dinosaurs, superheros, My Little Pony, Schleich {spelling?} animal collection, and army collection. Her army collection was my grandfather's, and has Australian, American, German, Japanese and Russian men, tanks, cars, weapons and buildings.

    Then she has a vintage writing desk, the wooden ones that has an ink pot holder, and the desk lifts up for storing books. That's where all her colouring books, paper and pens are. Then a giant dollhouse and dolls, a pile of soft toys, and an 'assorted' toybox, which has things like yoyos, spinning tops, horns, toy cars and trucks, and other random things in it.
    she has a stove, mop, broom, iron, mini kitchen and a mini toolchest as well.

    I won't stop my boys having toy guns. Guns don't kill people, killers with guns kill people, and if they don't have a gun, it's a knife, a baton, a sword, hell, even a sharp stick will do if someone is determined to hold up a store or seriously injure someone.
    Guns are not a weapon unless used as such, and it is extremely possible for guns to be used in a responsible manner.
    The only time kids get a hold on guns at home is if they're being stored in an irresponsible manner. LEGALLY they have to be in a gun safe, with ammunition and the guns stored seperately, and when PROPERLY set up, it can't be broken into by children, or by anyone who doesn't have the combination.

    I will promote responsible ownership, not baseless paranoia, much in the same manner that I've taught DD not to discriminate against certain dog breeds.

    I completely agree with everything you said about guns children should learn about them and the correct use of guns not kept away from them as most people that use the weapons inappropriately are the uneducated people that buy them on illegally. Dh guns are all locked up safe in a safe that I don't even know where the key to it is as I don't have a license yet and I simply don't want to know.

    I do contradict myself though because I always said I wouldn't buy her bratz dolls because to me, they look like tarts, but then I go and buy her the whole monster high range!

My mum and brother have got her some nice unisex gifts tho like a toy laptop I hope I don't seem ungrateful, I'm not I promise, it's just I had higher hopes for her than being a domestic goddess by the age of 3 haha although I am a SAHM so there's nothing wrong with cooking and cleaning all day! *sigh*
    I don't think that's silly at all I want DS to have a varity of toys to play with not just boys. He can be whatever he wants to be he doesn't have to do stereo typical boy things :-)
