Lego listens to 7-year-old girl and releases female scientists set

By Stella Inger. CREATED Aug 5, 2014

 TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)-  It looks like Lego listened to a little girl asking for more "girl power".  And it all started earlier this year with a letter from  Charlotte Benjamin, 7,  who wrote to the Danish toy company.  She said in part, " I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures...ok!?!"

Lego responded by releasing a kit that includes women in roles of scientists. It includes a female paleontologist, chemist and astronomer. The kit is so popular its sold out on its website.
