Thought I'd start this thread for those who want to discuss Christmas shopping, need advice or need to vent, whinge, or just simply spread some Christmas cheer
I'll start. I've just started DS's Christmas shopping (super organised this year!) and of course started rolling my eyes at the division of blue and pink isles clearly labelled 'boys toys' and 'girls toys' (you can tell how often I venture into the toy sections - hardly ever).
Anyway, I am wanting to get DS (3 years) more of a mix of toys this year as he has so much boy stuff and outdoors stuff, and have bought him a Dora doll (so I can do her hair ), a car parking station for all his cars, some Thomas stuff, and some lil woodzeez camper and family set, a couple of games/educational toys etc. I want to get more dolls/family type toys too.
I'm really into the family type toys for him this year but the only doll with pram thing I found that I liked was a barbie(?) type doll with twin babies in a pram. Does anyone know of a man doll with pram/baby toy??
Why it all has to be full-on pink is beyond me - there's none of that type of family stuff in the boy isles! It's so utterly sexist!! That's why I bought the woodzeez stuff as it's pretty gender neutral. I saw an awesome air plane toy with a mum and little girl inside (all pink too) which I loved! But DS is a boy so I thought he'd prefer toys with boys/men too, they all seem to have girls/women in them!
