Why not just let them be children? I was the only boy amongst five sisters and we grew up quite happily without specific toys. We played in the woods climbing trees or splashing in the stream. They were just as interested in frogs as I was and building, (Very dangerous) tree houses. When they needed someone to get in the pram it was always me, and being lazy would quite enjoy being pushed around snoring my head off, until they tipped me out. Non of us grew up with any issues regarding our sexuality and when we were very young it never occured to us that there was such a thing as sexual difference. We all grew up fine
