Hi, I would be really grateful if you could tell me in your opinion which of these are stereotypical for a boy or non stero-typical. If you could just typse S or NS next to each word please that would be fab. Ages ago I did a thread similar to this because I was thinking of opening up a small clothes shop. That's still a dream that will probably never happen but I thought it was really interesting to see what different things people thought were stereotypical to a particular sex - in this case to a boy.

I would have said mostly NS, apart from sea horses/swans/anchor/yeti/trumpet.

Dont ask why....I couldn't answer.

It's not a secret thread lol I just forgot to put a title. Started a different one anyway cos I reckon the list is probably a bit tedious!
