The first toy I remember being given was a doll.
You probably had other toys, you know, squeaky tings when you are a baby.
Maybe. What was the first toy you can remember?
I think it was probably a car or a gun.
Um. That’s because you are a boy and I am a girl.
Yah. Well, boys get boy’s toys and girls get dolls and pretend babies, don’t they?
Yes. But I am not sure it is the right thing to do though.
Because it preconditions the sexes what to expect to be or do when they are older.
Yah. But not all toys are gender driven, are they?
I suppose not. What can you think of what is not gender driven?
How about jigsaw puzzles, you know, where you put pieces together to make a picture?
Oh, yes. And crayons, pens, pencils.
Yes. And board games are not usually specific for boys or girls, are they?
No, not normally. But are they toys or games? Is there a difference?
