Let Girls Build Spaceships, 1970s Lego Note Tells Parents
A note in a Lego set from the 1970s encourages parents to let their children "create whatever appeals to them."By Katherine Biek | November 25, 2014
Lego fans call the toy timeless — but words on a pamphlet in a Lego set from the 1970s are decidedly modern.
The note reads: "The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls. ... You build whatever comes into your head, the way you want it. ... A lot of boys like dolls houses [sic]. They're more human than spaceships. A lot of girls prefer spaceships. They're more exciting than dolls houses. The most important thing is to put the right material in their hands and let them create whatever appeals to them."
The photograph of the note was originally posted to Reddit Friday.
