Do you think little boys shouldn't have mini kitchens to play with?


Gender-specific toys for little kids kinda ticks me off, I'm trying to understand the logic.

  • Kids love cooking. I think little kitchens are great for either gender. My girls and my nephew have a blast playing on ours when he comes over.

  • My son's favorite colour is orange then pink.. he loves his play kitchen and doll house. MEH I'm not worried. He will be who he is and toys don't change that.

  • Yes. My daughter has one and my son plays with it all the time. Boys need to learn how to cook too ;)

  • Ok maybe just me. although I dont see a problem with him playin with it cause my son has over my friends house she has a little girl. I would never buy my son one.

  • Nah. Im of a mind that if that is what they want to play with- let him. Girls play with trucks. Hey and there are a LOT of guys out there who love to cook and become great chefs too. I say let him have a mini kitchen if he wants it. My son loves playing with them too.

  • Sorry I meant NO

    Answer by mommy_of_two388 at 5:32 PM on Feb. 2, 2011

  • Heck no! If I had a little boy and that is what he wanted to play with, I would get it for him! My daughter plays with cars and action figures and any other "boy" toys she wants. I never want her to think she can't do something just because she isn't a boy! (And boy's shouldn't feel that they can't do something just because they aren't a girl!)

  • I think boy could play with kitchens. I'd buy it and if he likes to play with it so be it! GUYS CAN COOK TOO!! My DH is a great cook most of the time!

  • No, why shouldn't they? I don't really see a kitchen as a gender specific toy though. Dolls and trucks, yeah, those are more gender specific....but a kitchen?
