I'm going to TRY to put my foot down this year(my daughter's second) and ask she not get any Disney Princess stuff, or Barbie or anything overtly"girly". Her cousin was given a blackboard one year...by blackboard I mean a stupid pinky purple thing you couldn't see the chalk on!
No thank you! I'd like her to grow up as long as possible without succumbing to the hideous girl culture I see around today.
Fair enough if your DD doesn't like Barbie & princesses etc, my DD1 was like that, never was a pink girly fan. My DD2 is VERY different, from 18mths old she would choose to watch the barbie movies, loves pink and princesses etc (she also loves playing with her brothers nerf guns too
). I think parent's should follow their individual childrens likes and dislikes instead of worrying about gender bias. Would you demand your boys not be given toys that are typically marketed at boys too?
Yes Kylie I agree with you, very sad for 2011!!
