Even a Seven-Year-Old Knows: Lego Needs to Do Better

Seven-year-old Charlotte Benjamin wrote a letter to Lego, telling them they need to add more Lego girls:

“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!?!”

Because aren’t girls people, too?
