No, not the TV show.

So, LEGO is attempting to enter the girl market (again) with the latest product line of LEGO Friends. And this has apparently upset people on the Internet. Those people are silly.

I picked this set to showcase for several reasons:

1) It’s got a robot. I like robots.

2) It’s got a girl doing science stuff. How is that bad?

3) It highlights the fact that these don’t just look like prefab toys – you’re assembling regular LEGO bricks into regular LEGO forms. They’re just in pink. What’s the problem?

In other news, LEGO has gotten the Lord of the Rings license.

I demand a Bridge at Khazad-Dum set right Illuvitar-damned now! And maybe a LEGO LotR video game.


  1. Do you think they are getting movie rights just to do LEGO Lotr video games? Man i can’t wait for the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo LEGO Lotr video game.

  2. I was looking at the picture for the playset and i found my problem with it, she is in some kinda of workshop/science lab..their is all sorts of hazardous material and sharp edges and she is wearing sandals, this playset should not get any kinda of Osha award
