A new generation speaks. Yesterday when Miss Gracie had her nap the wee man was fathering the dollies.

Lego is a business not a social gender alignment organisation. In my view no changes need be made. My little grandson Sonny adores Lego and so does his younger sister Lois; he also likes playing with her dolls - fair enough I suppose.
Happy New Year!

Lawless- Yeah, and they're free to be wise. I think that's great that the Wee Man plays Daddy.

bazza- Right? Why change what doesn't need it? Happy New Year!
