  1. I absolutely adore your videos, but they are so gendered! Why would BOYS love truck and DADDYS play sport with the kids… I think it's a shame you're letting your kids grow up with that kind of stereotypes… otherwise, keep the good work, I LOVE IT! Thank you.

  2. since school is getting close can you make a video of really easy but yummy and healthy school lunches? c: Although my parents give me lunch money, my school does not have much variety and its quite unhealthy if I have to eat it everyday. (Pizza, donuts, hotdogs).

  3. I thought Fallon was Lincoln 😂😂😂😂😂! LOVE YOU GUYS💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😍😍😍😍😍💕💕💕💕💕😊😊😊😊😘😘😘😀😀😁😁😙😙🤗🤗💖💖☺️☺️👍👍😉😉

  4. Why all the fuss about genders? I don't think the kids who watch this will even notice. Adults tend to over think things. Gender neutrality isn't about forcing girls to like trucks and boys to like Barbies, it's about letting children be themselves. I myself grew up as a tomboy(for the sake of convenience let's not argue about whether this is a proper term), but I don't see anything wrong with girls only liking fairies and princesses. It's kind of sad how people nowadays keep complaining about boys being "boys" just to show they aren't stereotypical.

  5. Fallon is cute😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
