I'd used to dread having to open gifts and there'd be a creepy porcelain doll inside or a stuffed animal.. :/ Suffice it to say I'd normally tear those apart; heads, limbs and throw them in a corner or the playroom, or as an insult to injury throw them in the garbage bin thinking I'd get away with it..
When my parents changed residences from the city to "fresh country air" I found toy trucks and cars and excavators buried in the garden, only to have those taken away by my mom since making dirt forts and toy vehicles weren't the girliest of things..
Luckily my father had the good sense of getting me legos and bmx bikes after that..
The only time I played with dolls was when my cousin visited.
Otherwise I was outside diggin' in the dirt, climbing trees, catching snakes and salamanders, making forts.....
when i look back on things, i always got along better with the girls who werent into pink dollys and unicorn magic.
I think dollies are the difference between a princess and a real woman, lol
I did an experiment with my friend's daughter and her friends (5-8)... new toys, some "girly" and some that were "boyish." and let them choose.
Almost all of them chose the girly stuff.
Cause they're girls.
My brother used to have a pet python, and every time the neighbourhood kids would come over, mortally afraid of the snake - I'd just tell them that it only comes around to size them up calculating if it could swallow them.. Priceless expressions ensued..
