  • I wouldn't worry about it personally. If he were stabbing the dolls with a kitchen knife, I would worry! lol Honestly, I don't think it's a big deal.

  • No! My little boy has a sister. She sometimes plays trucks with him and I don't have a talk with her. I thank my lucky stars they are friends.

  • There isn't a problem with it. It happens. Heck, my little girl plays with trucks and like working under the hood with her daddy. Gender roles placed by society are not always the right thing. Let him pick his own toys naturally. He will decide what he wants. It's okay.

  • I don't mind my son playing with dolls. Usually he throws them for the dog to fetch. Lol. I have to say I don't want him to play with barbie. I just don't like her very much.

  • Why would I worry? You shouldn't be freaking out over this. I think it's wonderful for boys to play with things like that.

  • Let him play with them He will get bored and eventually move on to something different. My daughters always played with the bys trucks and never played with dolls or so called girly things. They both are doing okay. My sons played with dolls for a while and then got bored quickly and moved on.

  • I wouldn't have a problem with it.
    I put toy cars in my daughter's Easter baskets this year.
    The only thing I restrict them from playing with is violent toys: guns/knives/swords/etc.
