The kiddo wants Lego for Hanukkah/Christmas. Yay! I freaking love Legos. I love browsing Amazon for Legos and adding a shit ton of it to my wishlist. Oh, she’s gonna need tons of minifigs too! BUT WAIT. There are sets of 10, 20, etc. minifig men. Lots of sets of men. No sets of women. None of them even seem to be a decently-proportioned mix of men and women, except for the “educational community figures” set which is selling for $40+. Plus, half of them have painted-on mustaches so I can’t even snap some long hair on and call it a day. This vexes me greatly.
