    Absolutely fine. I had dreadful trouble finding a non-pink pram and non-pink doll for my ds. I eventually found a red toy stroller and my ds loved it - still does at nearly 7 years old. He's probably going to be a Dad one day, why not play at being one now?

    It is funny though to see how my ds & dd played very differently with dolls/prams/etc though. When my ds and my nephew were around 2 they would put each other in the toy pram and push each other into walls and they thought it was hilarious! Basically running fast with the pram and bashing it into things was the aim of their play, together or alone. Whereas my dd carefully puts her doll in the toy pram, tucks it in and carefully pushes it around.

    Boys & girls are different, but toys need not be gender specific.

    I decided to ask DF yesterday when we were at Toys r us if DS1 could have a pram and he said no way, that's ridiculous. I asked him if he could give me a good reason why not and he said because he is a boy

    Sad that he has this view. Although it won't stop me buying one if either boy asks for one.

    Just ask him do Dads not push prams? Does your DH not look after the kids. When he says yes ask him what's wrong with that? Nothing!

    I saw an ad for cabbage patch dolls and there was a boy cabbage patch! Defunateky getting that for ds so he can play daddy. He has a pram to push dolls in and he loves it. I also got him one with long pink hair to play with but he isn't into hairdressing yet.
    I think it's so sweet seeing boys play with dolls and tea cups etc. As it's ok for girls to play with trucks and mini garden tool sets etc. Why not

    I don't think it matters. I wanted to get DS a kitchen for him dbay this year as he was playing with the one at playgroup a lot but DH thought it was a bit 'weird' to buy because it was pink. Why the hell are they all pink anyway, do men not cook? 😡

    He pretty much has all the stereotypical 'boy' toys at home and runs straight to the dolls and prams at playgroup. Good for him I say!

    Lalasmooch, we have a red and black one from Kmart. I've seen blue ones and other red ones around too.

    The boys at our playgroup are the same with running to the prams.. they usually start having races with them though.
