So I purchased a camera via the buy now method. I was still bidding on 3. I just knew I would be out bid so I didn't consider not purchasing the camera. Well, apparently no one bids on Ebay on Friday night. I watched with anxious breath the bidding and now I am the proud owner of 2 pink fisher price tough kid cameras. The pink is the problem. I have a nephew and had I won the blue one I would not be in such a bind. I could conceivably sell the blue one to my mom to send to my nephew for Christmas or b-day in August. Pink is not a boy color though. I am terribly afraid I would offend my brother and sisnlaw with a pink camera. My nephew wouldn't care probably but I don't want any implications.
Why can't the durn cameras just be a neutral color like yellow or green or blue or red? Why pink? Glenys saw a blue one and said, "that is a boy's camera." She is only about to be 3 and already she has assigned color to gender.
I am selling the second one for which I paid over $10 less than the purchase now one for the price of $50 and that includes the shipping. That will recoup my losses if anyone is interested. I did e-mail the seller and tried to explain why I didn't need the pink one. I asked and begged via e-mail for him to send me a blue one. We will see if I receive two pink cameras or one pink and one blue. If I get two pinks, my offer stands. If I get a blue and pink, my nephew will get a camera for his birthday from his very cool aunt and grandparents (together).
