  • Of course. Why not?!

    I just talked about those ovens with my husband yesterday, because we bought our daughter a play-kitchen/grocery-store for christmas. (she will be 18months by then)...

    But sure, if I would have a son I would buy one for him. Men need to learn how to make cookies :D

  • did he ask for it? nothing wrong with a man that can'll come in handy one day. just imagine, he's on his own cooking show and on the pilot says."when i was 8..."

  • Most of the greatest Chefs out there are men, I would go for it, and I agree with thedies there are boy ones out there.

  • Yes!!! And I have one here that my DS loves to cook with....of course my DD does too. They are 6 and 7 and it was a TOGETHER gift for last years Christmas. DS is the one that asked for it, and DD chimed in that she wanted it too..... so grandma and grandpa bought them one that they can share!

  • i see no problem with it. growing up my brother had a "my buddy" doll. kids play with toys because of what they like to play with, they don't know the difference between boy toys and girl toys untill we as the parents start infulencing them.

  • There USED to be boy ones....there isn't on any more. My parents looked and looked and made phone calls... One they got is just white and black with a small small amount of pink. It was the best they could do..... They said it was better that then the ALL pink one!! That's why they got 1 for my kids to share, other wise I would have 1 for each one! One BOY one and one Girl one....but they don't make boy ones anymore....
