For Over a Year now, rumors have been rampant, that LEGO was going to release a Mini-fig Scale Disney Princess play sets. Those rumors have now been proven mostly correct. That is to say, the new line is probably based on the newer LEGO Friends models (Commonly referred to a s “Mini-Dolls”) For anyone who was upset about the LEGO Friends line, reinforcing gender stereo types and all that , this is not the line of toys for you. But for everyone else who has “girly” girls, or just want to let their daughters have fun, wherever they may find it, this is AWESOME!.


So it should not be a surprise that I am those, “the excited ones”. Not just because my daughter is a “girly” girl, but in spite of it, because these sets might just be her gateway into something more, you see, there is a part of me that thinks and hopes this will start her on a path thru LEGO Mindstroms, and on to real world engineering and true nerd/geekdom. But even if that doesn’t happen, someday, when she’s all grown, She and I can tell stories of a childhood spent playing with her father and “girly” Lego princesses. Which really is the breaking down of gender stereo types, not hers but mine. Since, as society sees it, should not I a grown man be appalled to play with pink LEGO? Probably, but, well I’m not! Bring it on! Pink frilly castles, towers, carriage rides, romantic boats, under-sea gates and archery sets here I come.
Check out the pictures, and see if you want to join me in the anti-revolution revolution.
