My son doesn't like how ugly the boy's clothes are, too much black and navy.
Please give me more orange, red and green!

Of course, we have to go to the "boys" area because everything for girls is pink, princess and unicorn. . . Argh!

We are pretty sure we have something for everyone and we never want to offend.
