The Barbie thread got me thinking about this

Do you buy (or only play with) your child(ren) gender specific toys? Or do you let them pick and play with whatever they want?

When DS was in daycare, he had a baby doll that he would play with everyday. It never bothered me, and when DH and I went on our honeymoon, we bought him a baby Woody doll so he had one at the house.

He also found my Barbies from when I was little and plays with them. (Cutest thing, I walked into the living room at my parents house and my dad was on the floor playing Barbies with DS!) I don't see anything wrong with him playing with "girl" toys, and he loves his "boy" toys too.

When DD is born, I will not separate their toys. If DS wants to play with DD's toys, that is fine, and vice versa.

How do you feel about this?
