Last year, Lego released the “Lego Friends” set, aimed at girls, to expand its market to the other 50% of the population. It was widely panned because its concept of women were stereotypical. So one female hacker, Limor Fried, decided to make her own playset featuring herself in an open source hardware developer workshop. You can see the article here: Limor Fried’s Lego for Girls Playset.
If she gets 10,000 votes, Lego will produce her playset! So head on over to Lego Cuusoo to vote! Or, if you don’t like her idea of a girl’s playset, Lego challenges you to think of something that will stimulate the young minds of boys and girls!
