Although my little fella has a stroller (it has wheels!) when I’ve introduced dolls into the equation they get short shift….. he isn’t 2 yet but tosses them or determinedly plonks them in a corner and I get the stink eye. He just loves his cars. I definitely don’t think playing and caring for a doll will make him more caring….he is so gentle with littler kids and swoons over babies, patting them ever so softly. He is who he is without me gender directing him whether with cars or dolls.
