Buckets and Purses

Uploaded: Dec 18, 2015

Right now our daughter loves carrying buckets all over our home. She fills them up with anything she can find- cars, trains, pretend food, etc.

It wasn't until earlier this week that she got her hands on a small purse and started filling it up. It was interesting to see an activity that seemed very gender-neutral, filling up buckets, turn into something stereotypically "for girls," carrying a purse.

Earlier today I saw a French commercial reminding us to stop labeling kids' toys "for boys" and "for girls." Kids will decide what they want to play with. I know we will be keeping a variety of buckets, bags, baskets, and purses available for our daughter to fill as she chooses.
