The Little Girl from the 1981 LEGO Ad is All Grown Up, and She’s Got Something to Say (via Women You Should Know)



 “In 1981,” explains Giordano, “LEGOs were ‘Universal Building Sets’ and that’s exactly what they were…for boys and girls. Toys are supposed to foster creativity. But nowadays, it seems that a lot more toys already have messages built into them before a child even opens the pink or blue package. In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.”

Lego Just Got Told Off By A 7-Year-Old Girl
“

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.”

Next time LEGO wants to launch a line of toys for girls, they might consider speaking to 3-year-old Cecilia. Instead of going the pastel hair salon route, this preschooler is mashing up mini-figure parts to make her own “Badass Lego Girls.” (via 'Badass Lego Girls' Made By A Badass 3-Year-Old (PHOTOS))
This 3-year-old’s Tumblr is going viral. What did you do today?

Inspired by the miniature marker sketches his artist friends, like Karen Hallion and Jesse Sans (or Atomic Rocket), were making on small card stock, LEGO builder Chris McVeigh (aka Powerpig) decided to create his own LEGO versions. That is, he would take pop-culture characters we all know and love and create small portraits of them using only LEGO bricks.

After making just one, his fans gave him such positive feedback that he knew he was onto something. As he tells us, “I quickly put together one of Wolverine and posted it on Instagram and Facebook. I was blown away by the response, and so I challenged myself to do more.”

He called them Brick Sketches and soon after creating Wolverine he made such awesome works as Batman (with a Bat signal), Optimus Prime (from Transformers), and even Cookie Monster (eating cookies). The three-dimensional portraits are all shot next to LEGO “pens” making them appear as if they’re hand-drawn (which, of course, they’re not).

"Creating Brick Sketches is loads of fun, but also quite tricky due to their rather small size," McVeigh says about his challenges. "I restrict myself to a 12"x16" brick canvas, roughly the same size as my friend’s marker sketches, and it can be a real challenge to find just the right combination of plates to represent a specific character. Adding to the complexity is that not all parts are available in all colors, and worse yet, I may not have all the parts on hand. In fact, I’m actually waiting for a number of brick orders to arrive so that I can complete a dozen or so of these sketches that I’ve already designed!"
