Ds is 4 and a half and adores doc mcstuffins and her annoying friends. He's asked for a few things for christmas but is dead set on a doc mcstuffins doctor's kit he saw in the supermarket so he can " be the real doc mcstuffins." He plays at being doc anyway with his regular dr kit but his eyes lit up when he saw the doc one. His other one is falling apart as it's had so much use so I was contemplating getting him a new set anyway.

Dh is dead against it. He thinks it will make ds gay hmm Way to go with being open minded and not ignorant dh. I have said that a) if ds is gay does it matter and b) if he's gay he will be gay regardless of whether or not he had a doc mcstuffins doctor kit.

Shall I just get it for ds? Surely he can't be the only boy who likes it? He also likes fighting and playing soldiers so it's quite nice to encourage his more caring side tbh!

My DS does but he is only 20 months......I did want to buy him the Lamb from it but like your DH mine was mortified I would even consider buying a lamb with pink clothes on!

Your DH is being a knob. Just get your DS the kit! smile

Ds also wants lambie boo boo! He's not interested in having a doc doll. He wants to BE doc instead!

Buy him the lamb * yoni*

I might get ds the dr's set and allow him to take it to the inlaws on Christmas Day because it will cause them all to have some sort of fit. This is where dh got his open minded views from.

my DSs loves it.
and peppa pig
and Sophia the first...

but he also loves
fireman Sam
looney tunes
and olly the little white van.

ahh wellgrin

I'd get it for him, but wouldn't make a big thing out of giving it to him in front of in-laws. If they make a big thing out of it, it could make ds feel bad for liking it iyswim.

Big eyeroll for your DH.

grin

Ds likes:
Doc mcstuffins
My little pony
Ben and holly (holly is his favourite)
Baby looney tunes

Also likes:
Jurassic park
Fireman Sam
Power rangers
Transformer bots or whatever it's called.

I think it's a good balance. Doc and baby looney tunes are his favourites though. He doesn't watch the others very often!

My DS is almost 4 and he loves the Doc too. He wants me to buy him the Doc's kit and Stuffy too because he's funny?!

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 15:22:45

Giyadas no I won't really but I'd like to! They have some, um, interesting views.

Mind you my own mother was on at ds the other week over the colour of something, ds wanted red but my mum was all "no boys always have blue."

It's so annoying!

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 15:23:39

Are you going to get it chocolate?

Rockchick1984 Wed 06-Nov-13 15:36:43

My DS is almost 3 and is desperate for a Peppa Pig pram... DH isn't too keen but I've bought it grin

My DS (2.5yo) spends a lot of his time pushing around a pink minnie mouse vacuum cleaner smile

Isn't it true many years ago that pink used to be for boys and it was blue for girls?

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 15:41:08

It is milk

I do wish the doc mcstuffins stuff wasn't pink and glittery as well though I must admit. The glitter is a bit overkill. Plus it will probably fall off everywhere because I suspect the merchandise will be a bit naff as merchandise connected to tv shows usually is.

ChocolateMoosey Wed 06-Nov-13 15:46:35

I don't know... Stuffy is £8 for a small soft toy so tightwad mummy won't be buying that! But the set is a possibility.

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 15:50:28

The set is currently £13 on amazon...I'm twitching!

RandallFloyd Wed 06-Nov-13 15:54:54

Really? You're DH honestly said that a toy will make your son gay?

And you are actually giving that a millisecond's thought?

Dear Christ.

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 15:58:07

Oh no I don't for one second think a toy can make someone gay or not gay.
It's more do I want the aggravation of dh stropping about it.

Giyadas Wed 06-Nov-13 16:03:53

I'd take the strop rather than give in to such thinking.
btw, can take or leave pink but glitter is fabulous! dd has grown out of all that kind of stuff, I miss having a glittery house sad

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 16:05:35

I am not a fan of glitter in any form! It gets everywhere!

RandallFloyd Wed 06-Nov-13 16:06:35

That doesn't sound any better tbh.

Why on earth would he 'strop about it'? And more importantly why would you care if he did?

Mittensonkittens Wed 06-Nov-13 16:14:01

Because he has (wrong) views on what are girls' and boys' toys. Ds has some toys that dh doesn't like already.
It's just whether or not I want the hassle of it at christmas! I know that's a cop out by the way. I rather suspect ds will end up with the toy and dh will have this face confused for a little while.

ChocolateMoosey Wed 06-Nov-13 16:19:29

mittens that's quite reasonable, at that price he might just get his Doc kit after all.

keli5325 Wed 06-Nov-13 16:31:06

i got doc mcsuffins doctor set for my ds who is 2.5 yrs and dh was not impressed but personally i couldnt give a shit what he thinks!
Ds will love it grin

Awitchwithoutchips Wed 06-Nov-13 16:32:36

My ds (4 next week) loves Doc McStuffins too and wants stuff for his birthday & Christmas. I will be buying some stuff for him and dd (twin). They don't care what is pink or blue. They share all toys. Gay stuff is so old fashioned and just plain wrong, I feel sorry for people who still feel this way

DTisMYdoctor Wed 06-Nov-13 19:46:21

DS is 5 now and likes doc mcstuffins and Sophia the first. As well as power rangers, batman etc. get him the toy!
