my nephew asked for and received an Easy Bake oven,Barbies,a play kitchen,a Dora bike,Dora pajamas,and baby dolls for Christmas. The bike is pink and lavender with white wheels by the way.
Would you buy these things for a boy who will be 9 in 4 months? He didn't ask for anything boy related. I think he's going to stand out in a bad way if his friends see what he's playing with. The bike especially. I have no issues with gay people,or transsexuals. i just think that those things should be put away where no one else knows about them until he reaches an age where he can handle the possible ridicule.
He's very effiminate and cries all the time. His behavior has already lost him a few friends this year because the boys are "toughening" up more in 3rd grade.
Its sad but true that if you don't live up to certain social standards,you will be picked on.

i am surprised that the girl pj's fit him right. usually they are cut differently. but i wouldn't consider the oven or play kitchen 'girl toys'....i would call those unisex. it sounds like he likes dora to me.....my nephews like dora too. i wouldn't have bought the bike or the pj's because like i said the clothes are different for boys and girls and the bikes are different too....i would have bought him a plain (boys) bike and some dora stickers to put on there. they also have some dora stuff that is neutral....mostly red. that's what i buy for my nephews. so i guess what i'm saying is i wouldn't buy them stuff made specifically for girls (like the bike and the pj's) because they are made differently and wouldn't work as well for a boy. for the other stuff i could care less. and if he has lost friends over what toys he chooses, then they were not his friends to begin with!

Next question overall
How much do you give a 4 1/2 yo? My daughter only goes once every 1-2 weeks.
