So You Wanna Buy My Daughter a Gift?

A quick guide to help you out.

If it’s gender-neutral that would be a plus.

It it’s made of plastic that would be a minus.

Mass-manufactured is a minus, but hand-crafted is a plus.

Batteries? Minus.

Noisy? Minus.

Educational? Plus.

Reflecting values antithetical to our own? Minus, minus, minus.

    I think I’ll go out and get her the frilliest, pinkest, most ridiculous Disney Princess attire I can find. Including high heels for toddlers. It gets harder and harder to find anything else for little girls. Ditto little boys, except their stuff has construction vehicles and sports on it. I’ve been mail ordering clothes and shopping in very specific stores (Le Jouet) for anything else.
