I think you hit the nail on the head with "colorful" - and I'm sure that has a lot more to do with it than her being a girl. My niece ADORES trucks, cars, trains, cookies, dogs, and Grandma. Probably because they are colorful and in motion, colorful and in motion, colorful and in motion, yummy, soft, and prone to spoil her rotten. ;-)

I suspect my son thinks there are 3 genders: men, women, and children.

This is because he is intensely fascinated by the fact that men and women have separate toilets, and his kindergarten and nursery school have both had unisex children's toilets. So while he definitely knows that boys grow up to be men and girls grow up to be women, I'm pretty sure he hasn't realized boy/girl is the gender distinction applying to children.
