We’ve been taking a look at some parenting forums and a certain question came up quite a lot.
This one, from the US online magazine Mothering was typical:
So my son and I went and saw Santa. He had a great experience and had the chance to play with some of the toys that Santa had in his “workshop” (we were the only kid there).
I asked him if he had fun playing with the dollhouse at Santas. Now he seems convinced Santa is bringing it because he played with it while visiting Santa. I have no problem with his having a “girl” toy, but I don’t want him to want it just because I said something. I don’t want to get it for him only because I am suggesting it. He is 3 in January and agrees to most any toy suggestion at first. He really seemed to enjoy paling with it and he is very into imaginative play right now.
I started looking to see if I could find a dollhouse and they are all very pink and girly. Any experienced mom’s have a suggestion of a reasonably priced house that isn’t girls only?
