    My ds 4 plays with all his sisters toys. Dolls, barbie, ponies. He always has done. He plays with his toys alot more now as in trucks, lego, ben 10 and turtle whatever. But I often catch a glimpse of him pushing buzz lightyear in the pram. Hes a boys boy as in ruff and tumble too.

    My DS has a baby doll -- that he runs over with his toy truck....! Oops!

    Seriously thou, as if it matters -- I don't buy into the "boys vs girls" toys - let kids play with whatever they want!

    Is your husband also a parent? Does he push your ds in the pram?
    Why can't every child act out being a nurturing parent? It should not be restricted to girls... the same goes for pretend kitchens etc.

    I could never understand why anyone would think anything wrong of it. What are they going to grow up to be... Fathers? Gay men? The horror!

    Gender stereotyping really does my head in. They're just kids, let them play with what toys they want to and dress how they want to. Who cares what aisle you found it in.

    Exactly! It's teaching kids to be caring future parents!

    DH is great around the home (50-50 housework & child responsibility split) so I think this view will make sense to him.

    What was the outcome of your conversation with DH?

    This just prompted a thought... A baby doll will be good 'training' for when DS is going to become a big brother next year...

    I just can't fathom how it's even a topic of debate with some people.

    It could also be a great way to teach your ds how to be gentle with a baby before you bring your new little one home

    My son loves his pram and likes the dolls. My grandpa made the pram after some convincing (he wanted to build a block trolley cos that's what boys have).
    Lately DS has been treating his cars like dolls though. Washing, drying, feeding, kiss and cuddles good night
