xj, Boys playing with "action figures" and girls playing with dolls (baby or Barbie) are TOTALLY different. Were you not a kid?! Read Christina Hoff Summers' book "Who Stole Feminism?" In it, she tells the results of a study by a toy company to see if there really was a gender difference in young children, and gave them equal toys. When the boys had the cool full-size playhouse set-up, complete with babies in buggies, the boys launched the buggies off the roof. (The girls predictably played House.) As a little girl, I played with G.I. Joes. Well, I borrowed my neighbor's so I could use him to marry my Barbie.
