Rethinking Gender Neutral Toys For Children

Is it time for parents to rethink gender-specific toys and gifts for their children?

Picking an appropriate gift for your child or someone else’s child is hard enough these days.  What do you buy the boys?  What do you buy the girls?  More and more, those questions are not being asked.  Maybe the girl asks for a play toolkit.  Maybe the boy wants a kitchen set.  If that’s the case… how do you handle those requests?
