I was just wondering if anyone buys their kids gender specific toys: like cars for boys and dolls for girls. There's nothing wrong with them playing with the other's toys, they make pink cars and "manly" dolls. And if you have kids of opposite genders then of course they'll play with each other's toys. I played cars with my brothers and they played tea party with me. But would you buy your son a baby doll with all the accessories or your daughter a hot wheels race track, assuming that was your only child or the only gender children you had? My cousin's son (he's about 6 or 7) has a baby doll that he carries around everywhere and has a stroller and everything for it and I think that's just a bit strange. And I'm wondering where he got the idea for the doll from since he has no sisters!
