Mum Lauren says Nicholas was challenging gender stereotypes when he insisted on wearing a My Little Pony dress in front of his class - just like the boy in the David Walliams book. A four-year-old schoolboy wore a My Little Pony dress to school for non-uniform day - because he insists boys can wear girls' clothes too. The real-life 'Boy in the Dress' - Nicholas Perkin - was challenging gender stereotypes when he wore the pony-adorned dress in front of his classmates, according to his mum Lauren Springthorpe.
The proud mother, 22, explained Nicholas picked out the Tesco outfit himself - teaming it with white tights and converse trainers - and begged his mum and dad to buy it for him. Nicholas' brave stunt has echoes of David Walliams children's tale 'The Boy in the Dress', which tells the story a year-old boy who dresses up as a girl to go to school.
Mum-of-one Lauren, who has not yet read Nicholas the book, said: "We went shopping Boys wearing girls clothes stories Tesco a couple of weeks ago and when we were in the clothes section he picked out the My Little Pony dress. It's size four to five so it would fit me. Skirts aren't just for girls, you know. He gave him a big hug to say thank you for buying it for him. He chose the outfit himself with white tights and converse.
He says it's a pretty dress and he looks really good in it. I sent him with a change of clothes as well in case he got bullied, but he only had to change for a walk in the woods. Lauren says she and Nicholas' dad Liam Perkin, 21, though not together, are both extremely supportive of Nicholas' choice to wear female clothing. And sales and marketing manager Liam was even the one who purchased the My Little Pony dress for his son during the family shopping trip.
Nicholas' pony frock isn't his first appearance in a skirt at school as on World Book Day earlier this month he graced the classroom dressed as Cruella De Vil, complete with black pencil skirt, cape and wig. Lauren said her son is an avid fan of My Little Pony toys and clothing but also loves toys and clothing which is more stereotypically male. And the mum-of-one said she has no qualms about her boy dressing however he likes - despite some parents disagreeing with her. Lauren, said: "I don't really know what it is that he likes about dresses so much. I don't know whether it's the feel of the fabric or how they look.
A couple of children in his class picked on him a little bit, and he said he would never wear dresses again. But then the teacher spoke to the boys and it was sorted. As long as he's happy I don't mind.
The teachers don't mind, they think it's great. I'm not bothered what he plays with and wears, as long as he's happy.
