In the early stages of development, toddlers often find that role playing is their own way of learning things. They use role-play to put in to practice the things we show them everyday and it's because of this reason that I really encourage Joshua to play with toys like the sets that Fisher Price have in their Little People range.
All of the playsets that you can get feature characters and surroundings/houses that are suitable for boys and girls. Being able to put figures in to buildings, and practice reactions etc is important as Josh learns about everyday things. We personally love the Little People Happy Sounds house, it's great for his fine motor skills as he learns about pressing the buttons that make noises and learning that he can control that. Joshua's favourite part is when we put everyone in the family to bed and then we get them up again!
I'm not one to think that boys can't play with toys like this-they are totally unisex and great for boys and girls. I'm speaking from experience because my little man loves this!
