If you don’t mind your deals a little girly

I don’t understand why toymakers insist on making things on “boy” and “girl” colors. There must be a market for it, but it annoys me to no end.

It doesn’t annoy me quite enough that I’d pass up a deal like this, though: Get yourself a 96-piece Geomag Pastelles set (ooooh! girly and so French!) right now for just $7.29; that’s 71% off the regular price.

Give it to a girl. Give it to an enlightened boy. Heck, just play with ’em yourself. I’m not naming any names, but someone around here has been known to build a sculpture or two while the kids are at school….


  1. Your link is showing up as $24.99 for me.

  2. I was just thinking of this boy/girl color thing a few weeks ago, when I saw a “Tool kit for Mom!” advertised for Mother’s Day. They were totally ordinary tools, but with pink handles. I was repulsed……..and also thought they were, um, pretty.

  3. I think I fixed the link, but if it\’s not coming up right, check the righthand column labeled \”more buying choices\” and select Amazon for $7.29. 🙂

  4. Aaaaaaand… now they appear to be gone. Sheesh. Sorry, guys.

  5. That one was quick! Too bad – my daughter loves magnets and I love a great deal for the birthday/Christmas closet! Thanks anyways Mir!
