I make shaped crayons to sell and I had a lady ask me about monsters shapes. So I sent her this photo and let her know I can do them in any colors. She replied saying the party was for a little girl. Ok. So SHE asked for "monsters" for said little girl and all of a sudden BABY DINOS are not even something to consider?? lol. I have to laugh cause...since when were baby dinos gender specific??

What say you?

Then I told her i also had flowers hearts and hello kitty ones that I do...for a GIRL lol...and nothing.

But MONSTERS are appropriate.

.............................

LOL...she might think that the Lego crayons I have are also only for boys...

I think the whole idea of 'gendered' crayons is stupid. (and just about every other gendered toy as well).  My almost 3 year old dd LOVES dinosaurs!

Same here my dd loves starwars skulls and her skateboard. As a teacher I want all kids to feel they can play with any toy they want. Boys can play babies they have dads so why can't they play dads like the girls play mommy

Maybe her party theme is monsters and dinosaur won't go well? Jmg. I don't like when they claim something is gender specific.

Seriously? I didn't know girls couldn't like dinosaurs... The gender stereotypes that we push on our kids is so ridiculous.

that's perfectly fine if it didnt go with the theme...the point was...her reply to it was "the party is for a little girl" lol she implied the dinos were for boys..totally didnt even comment more...so that's what got me lol

I think she may have said that is because on a lot of little boy's clothing, there are dinosaurs. I am with you on the monsters though lol. I don't understand that. Unless maybe she was thinking of Monsters Inc stuff.. I don't know lol.

well it didnt make sense to me...she wants MONSTERS for the girl...but somehow BABY DINOS dont make the cut LOL

and im not talking about her party theme...but just the way she replied to me in dismissing the dinos
