This Girl Turned A Feminine Lego Set Into A Girl Power MegaBot
Given a clearly gendered Lego set, this girl took things in an entirely unexpected direction.
While debates about gendered toys rage, some little kids just go ahead and take things into their own hands — like this girl, who received a Lego Friends Juice Bar for Christmas. With its female figurines and pink color scheme, the set has some clear ideas on how it should be used. The girl had her own ideas, though, and turned the thing into a world-eating, gender expectation-destroying Mega Robot. Was she making a statement akin to the notorious GoldieBlox “Princess Machine” commercial? Is she a budding master builder flexing her chops with the tools at hand? Does she just hate juice? Only one thing about this story is certain: It’s all awesome.
