Lego Will Release Its First Mini-Figure That Uses A Wheelchair

Toymaker Lego is set to release its first mini-figure that uses a wheelchair.

The company plans to debut the figure and a service dog this summer.

A Change.org petition with over 20,000 signatures asked Lego to feature more characters with disabilities.

The group behind the petition said in a statement the move "will speak volumes to children, disabled or otherwise, the world over."

The new figures are part of the "Lego City" line, set to debut in June.
