Activist outraged by Lego's geared towards girls

My girls love them.  They also have a variety of other legos.  If you don't like them, don't buy them!

That is RIDICULOUS! The "Ladyfigs" (does LEGO actually use that term? I really doubt it) in our set include a dad who is also "curvier".  The regular Lego figures are ROBOT shaped!  Now that I look at it (we've had this set for at least 6 weeks) very closely, it does look like the girl (whom I would say is 14 or so - maybe older since one of them has a car) does have teeny breasts. Lego made "people-shaped" people for these new sets.  What's wrong with that?

 

They're offended because the set includes pink? Girls like pink! And it's not Barbie pink.  The set we have is a beige and white house with a pink roof. There's actually not many pink pieces.

 

And they're offended, I guess, that these brilliant girls have opened a pet care center, her own bakery, or, like we have, an inventor's workshop!

 

How dare they make entrepreneurial teenage girls in realistic-shaped bodies. rolleyes.gif

I think its a good thing since it may help get some girls that are soo girly into diff type of toys and into bulding things etc!

At least the girl figures in these sets don't look like slutty Bratz dolls!

Exactly! These people need to pick their battles.

For my daughter, she hates them. I was excited to see the girl colors but the themes, in her opinion, were just stupid. There wasn't a single set that she was ingested in. I wish the line had been completely designed differently but they aren't, and while I am not protesting them, I most certainly am not buying them either.

I love the girly Legos! I've thought about buying a set just for me.smile.gif

I forgot to mention that one thing I don't like about them is the clothes. The girls all have sleeveless shirts and mostly shorts/short skirts on. Bleh.
