Support these LEGO STEM Minifig Sets

If you’re unfamiliar with LEGO Cuusoo, it’s a very cool concept that allows LEGO fans the ability to design sets for LEGO. If the design concepts get enough support from the internet community, the people at LEGO will consider putting that set into production.

The design set concept I came across today might just be my new favorite.

According to the designer Alatariel:

Although recently LEGO® has started to design and add more female figures to their sets, they are still a minority. A small set of minifigures, which LEGO® has made in the past for different themes, would provide a great opportunity to add women to our LEGO® town or city communities. I have designed some professional female minifigures that also show that girls can become anything they want, including a fire fighter or a paleontologist (main picture).

I’m pretty jazzed about this LEGO idea, not only because of the positive representations of women that both boys and girls should embrace, but also because various studies have shown that women are more likely to get involved in an activity (such as the STEM carreers in these LEGO sets) if they see women represented.

So how do we get these sets into production? Click here, click support, and tell your friends. Then start pestering LEGO, keep talking about it and asking for it. Getting 10,000 supporters only makes LEGO consider producing it, after all. We have to be very vocal about our demand for STEM lady minifigs.

    I can think of so many girls I would give these to! They have my vote. 🙂
