When I was a young girl, I used to love boys’ toys: railroad sets, construction sets, building blocks, toy trucks. But I always got dolls and doll related toys – as hand-me-downs from my older girl cousins.
Well, having a grandson satisfied my desire for boy toys. I bought every kind of truck out there. Was I buying them for him or for me?
Now that I have a granddaughter, I am back to dolls. She loves to play with her brother’s toys. But the look in her eyes when I showed her how to make a paper doll said it all! We go through all my stuff, we design, we cut, we paste. We spend hours together and well, we enjoy the girl thing we share!
