Lego gets a telling off from a 7 year old girl

When Lego introduced the pink range of Lego Friends aimed at girls it made me very angry. I really didn’t see a need for it, it didn’t need to be pink. What Lego should have done is market their run of the mill Lego at girls, by simply adding female Lego figures and being clever at advertising.

It would seem that at 7 years old, Charlotte has the same opinion. She points out that with the ‘boys’ Lego they are going on adventures, have jobs and save lives but the girls sit around the house or go to the beach.

Lego should be for all regardless of gender.  Girls don’t need pink to want to play and be creative, they just need to see their gender represented in the same situations and the boy Lego figures.

Here is the letter she wrote scroll down for a translation just in case you’re in proficient and reading children’s hand writing:

“Dear Lego company:

My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls.

Today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks.

I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!

Thank you.

From Charlotte”
