I agree. I have a 3yr old nephew who is OBSESSED with Bobby Flay, The Pioneer Woman and...twirling flags/tossing rifles. He saw his teenaged cousin (my daughter) last year compete in Color Guard so he now has his own (mini) flag among his toys of trucks and stuff. When they come to visit, he wears his chef coat, handkerchief, one of my old chef hats, his apron and side towel...and the little dude and I play Top Chef. We had to go looking for unisex kitchen toys, and thankfully I think the toy industry (I hope, at least) is finally getting its act together.
Kids will become the BEST version of themselves they are meant to be, without our need or effort(s) to define or pidgeon-hole them. 😊
