Boys Toys? Girls Toys? Or Simply Toys?

I knew someone who tried for 15 years to give her son and daughter "gender free" toys and activities. Eventually, the daughter went to work as a florist and the son joined the army... What are your views on this controversial topic?

Should children be given gender-free or gender-specific toys?
