    My DS loves strollers too. And he also loves blue. So I got an old pink one second hand for a few dollars, spray painted it blue, and made a seat cover for it out of some blue cars and trucks fabric I had. I found the pattern for the toy stroller seat online for free. It was fun, and he loves it.

    My daughter had a white one with pale yellow and green patterned material. At work we have all black, they are the newborn to toddler style ones with a red brake and all, but I imagine they were more than $20. The one dd had was from Big W. I've noticed it is getting harder to buy gender neutral or non-licenced toys. I've recently been looking for pop up toddler tents, blow up small pool, tunnel, etc and they are bloomin' Cars or Disney Princess! Toys are aimed so specifically at boys or girls that you now get Lego in the boy aisle or girl aisle

    Ah yes! Pink Lego and Mega Bloks!!!! Whats with that?! I loved ( still love) Lego, more than any doll I used to have. There weren't any pink versions in those days and I still loved playing with it regardless. Who cared if it was just standard unisex colours?!
    Now there has to be a girl version of every boy toy, but why aren't there boy versions of girls toys?

    Going off on a tangent - but it also peeves me that the 'girls Lego' is basically a playset - most of the things are premade moulded plastic that you don't actually build with, at least the 'boys Lego' you still build.

    Very true! I used to have (still have it in storage for when DS is old enough) one of the first electric Lego trains. It's well over 20 years old and I could spend hours and hours playing with it.
    It was simple and fun and you could add so much to it. Nowadays it's all branded merchandise like Star Wars, Disney, etc.
    It drives the price up and leaves hardly any room for a child's imagination to go wild

    Bought my son's pram from mothercare. It's blue. Very cheap. I'm pretty sure they have an online store also.
