For those that buy toys/gifts/food for holiday charity drives...


Do you buy the same sort of food for food drives that you buy for yourself? Why/why not?

When buying a gift for a child, does your social/gender opinions ever enter the picture? Meaning, if you don't support Barbie and the message she gives girls would you buy one for a child?
When you purchase a doll do you automatically buy a white baby doll/Barbie? Do you automatically buy a black one? Why/why not?
Would you buy a little boy a doll?
How about buying a truck for a little girl?

When purchasing for a toy drive, would you rather purchase a large gift for one child or buy a smaller, less expensive gift for a half dozen children?

All of these questions prompted by me at Target not knowing what the hell I'm doing. Every toy I picked up seemed loaded with social consequences. And then I just felt rotten. :(
