Way cool. Maple syrup doubling as bacon!!!!

They've come under a lot of heat for their new products, aimed specifically at girls, and themed in a very 1960's gender-relegated fashion---like kitchens and hair salons.

What thinkest thou 'bout such a thing?

I think it sucks. As a parent of a 3 y.o. girl, I'm appalled at the fact they're still shilling the same pink crap with the same old gender roles, except with more sex. Jeezus, let her be a kid! Let her choose what she wants, don't just force f*ing pink vacuum cleaners and kitchens on her. And no, making a lab coat pink with pink lab equipment doesn't f*ing count.

Ken, I think you're holding back your true feelings.

They claim that the sets "for girls" on the market are the result of several years of product testing with actual tiny female people--Danish ones. I thought all Scandanavian women were nymphos?

They shoulda made a massage parlor set, a lesbian school gymnasium set, and an evil restaurant chef/owner set. How's 'bout breakin' some financial career barriers with a Suse Orman doll?
Hmmmm, Lego goes voodoo?

I think most people with brains would agree with you, Ken.

So, the Lego Diaper Change set would also not be a good thing then Ken? 'Damn It, I hate returning things.'

Now what to get my niece then? I guess there is always the Lego Softball Set but then maybe I've swung the pendulum to far the other way?

How about a nice, politically correct, single, yellow block. She won't be able to build anything but it won't insult anyone either.

Just doing some pot stirring. Enjoy.

They didn't have any of that stuff when I was a kid. What's a wheel?
