The difference between girls and boys

I don’t think a day goes by without someone moaning about gender and toys. There shouldn’t be pink lego, trucks shouldn’t only be blue etc etc.  I’ve always thought this a silly argument, particularly as my boys quite like the pink lego and pushchairs. In our house it’s every person for themselves and the kids choose exactly what they want. I don’t think the colour of toys makes the blindest bit of difference, it certainly doesn’t to my purchasing. I tend to think its a non argument and that it’s quite nice that you can get pink and blue toys. Maybe that is just me.

The other day the kids tipped out their Duplo on the floor and set about making their own creations, they were not in the least bit influenced by me. However, I think it’s glaringly obvious which creation here belongs to the boys and which to Fifi…

    My daughter is very anti-pink and loves boys toys, but you can still tell from their creations which was made by a girl and which by a boy. They are certainly wired differently

    Hi Claire, thanks for post.<br />Moaning is definitely not a good thing, but I think it&#39;s in our nature or maybe 21st century made us like that. 🙁 <br />I could only agree – pink lego or truck shouldn&#39;t be a problem, I recon things like this opens their minds, lets them think out of box…<br />P.S. Yes Claire, its more than obvious which one is Fifis. :)<br />Cheers.
