This new set from LEGO which celebrates diversity amongst fans of the product (and I think also to celebrate their own values and diversity as LEGO is known for being one of the best and most inclusive employers in the world) is hitting shelves on 1st June. It will be available on their website as well as LEGO stores, and it’s something a little different. I for one absolutely love the concept and what it stands for! This set is part toy and part art piece which is something which you don’t see that often with LEGO… I think you can totally class this as a designer toy!
It’s a 346 piece model measuring 10.24 cm high and 12.8 cm deep which will set you back 34.99 Eur and is meant to be a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community. The backdrop of this piece shows a rainbow of 11 different colors and as that then slopes forwards and becomes the floor for the figures to stand on, each color has a corresponding figure – each a different color, and each with a different hair style. What a wonderful way to show that whilst we’re all different we’re all still the same deep down and that our differences and similarities need to be celebrated equally.
I don’t know how anyone could not love this product and its message – thank you LEGO.
