The Littlest pet shop for Boys/Girls or both?

We were shopping early. DH & I grabbed Deals. We were in the store at 5am. Out by 5:12 am! The Littlest pet shop. Is it for Boys & girls or only Girls? We have Grandsons. That are 2 & 4. They love pets and animals! Looking for your opinions! We think many toys are toys! To suit their own personal tastes! I played with trucks, cars, tinker toys, legos, Light Bright! Barbies & Velvet Etc.. So I'm looking for your opinion! As always I'm thankful for your kind rerplies! Merry Christmas!

  • They are definitely geared towards girls, but I let my son play with my dd's LPS toys.

  • i think they are mostly for girls, but I'm sure boys that age would enjoy them too. I have always let all my kids play with boy or girl toys, it really shouldn't matter, whatever they like!

  • I bought my son (3yr) a bird by furreal friends. I think it is geared toward girls but he absolutely loves it and didn't pay attn to the purple box it came in.

  • I'd say it is a little girly, but my 2 yo son would love it.

  • My son is thrilled with those. He walks straight past the 'boy toys' every time for the kitchen set and littlest pet shop. Especially at 2 & 4 I'd say you're safe from having to worry about it being too girly. It's more likely to be the favorite gift. :)

  • I would say for girls, my girls have it and love it! I guess it all depends on the child.

  • I would say both. My sons therapist brings them over sometimes and he loves them. I was in the store and saw some that seemed more geared towards boys, like a parrot with a eye patch.

  • Linda, I think they're mostly geared toward girls (my daughters are nuts for them!) However, some boys might like them, particularly very young boys. I think once they get a little bigger, the boys might realize that the toys are a bit "girly" and some of them won't like that. I bet since your grandsons are only 2 and 4, they will love them.
    Merry Christmas to you too!

  • Well, they can be for both since my 5 year old son will play with them (he does have 3 older sisters), however unlike 'Pound Puppies' that came out when I was younger it's less for 'both' genders and tends to lean toward girls over boys.

    There are bins at Target that sell medium sized durable animals. They are a bit pricey but you can usually pick out what you think the child would like more and there are wild, zoo, and farm animals.
