Or are you strict about letting her/them play with girl toys? And vise-versa if you have sons.
We allow our DD to play with whatever she finds interesting. If that happens to be cars and helicopters, etc, than that's what we'll let her play with. We're not very gender oriented, we allow her to play with whatever she's interested in.

I strongly believe in non-sexist childrearing. My sons had girl and boy toys. They learned girl and boy skills and had girl and boy friends. I had friends that were raising their children the same way. We had read research Bem had done that found people that were more androgynous were more flexible and mentally happy. My boys are now men and I think it worked out well. They treat women very well and can do everything - cook, shop, sew, take care of babies, guy stuff, everything.
I think it is a huge mistake to call a girl a princess and go overboard on pink.
