I accidentally ordered the pink lunch box set thing for DS from Tupperware (put the wrong item number in). He stayed back a year, so he's one of the eldest in the class and seems to be pretty popular, so he's very confident. When he saw the colour of it as I pulled it out of the box, he said "I can't have that!" I said "Why not?" (testing him), to which he replied "Pink is for girls"
He has agreed to use it until I order a blue one (I plan on keeping the pink one for DD). I actually don't mind sending him with the pink one, I think it will be an interesting test of how the other kids react and how he handles it. It's like a little social experiment!

Would you send your SON to kinder with a PINK lunch box set (in a pink cooler bag)?

Yeah I would, but not if my DS didn't like it. He's not quite at that stage yet.

Yeah, DS at first said no, but he actually wants to use it now. I gave him the choice of waiting until the blue one came in and using his old lunch box, or using the pink one...and he has chosen to use the pink one.

DS2 has a pink drink bottle that he takes to kindy. He chose the pink one. I am not aware that any of the kids have commented however the kids at kindy are only 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 years. My boys haven't cottoned onto the 'that's a girls colour' or 'that's a boys colour' yet. I don't mind what colour they pick.

My DD has a Moshi Monsters cooler bag and its very boyish. I don't hesitate to give my girls boyish things and wouldn't hesitate to give a son pink things. If it was a huge issue for him then I would change it, but otherwise its much of a muchness
Hollywood, why doesn't he stick some spiderman stickers on it if he's not comfortable about the colour?
