Girls wear PINK and boys wear BLUE!
Girls wear PINK and boys wear BLUE, WHY? I've been doing a bit of research into this. Apparently it started to come into popular culture just before World War 1. Its not very clear where it came from. But somebody out there decided that blue was a masculine colour and pink feminine. Well I say Boll#@ks to that, plus other expletives!. Let's start bucking the trend. I want to put my little girl in any colour I choose and I want to be able to buy any colour easily. This is why is started my business. Don't get me wrong, I think my little one looks great in pink. Thats not the problem, the problem is that when I go out on to the high street, I have a very limited choice. (pink, light pink, hot pink and pastel pink, is not the choice I want!).
The revolution has started! Say NO to gender specific clothing colours and YES to multi coloured and cute.
We must stop the brain washing of our children and allow them more freedom of choice. This is across the board, regarding toys, attitudes and stereotypes.
Thats enough ranting for now. Off to play with my blue wearing, truck playing, strong minded daughter now lol!
