On mene les personnes; on porte les choses.

Alors:

"Maman EMPORTAIT toujours beaucoup de....."

"Tu APPORTAIS tes poupées....."

Better to use correct grammar, esp. on a teaching site ...AIN'T that so?

Kimber, this is the prescriptive versus descriptive grammar argument. 

In the text, the language being used reflects current usage by a native speaker, as many French people do now - descriptively correct grammar, if not prescriptively so. 

Even using 'amener' for both situations wouldn't surprise.

As per this link covering the topic :
