I always loved Lego’s and Meccano when I was a kid, but if girls need different things, who am I to argue? GoldieBlox is a cool project and I hope Debbie succeeds in her mission. If I had a daughter I would certainly get some! (All though, being a Scandinavian, I would probably get her some Lego’s too.)
Update: Having looked at these other toys, I realize what she’s on about even more. I never thought about how very boy-oriented they were. Back when I played with Lego’s they were mostly standard block, but that seems to not be the case anymore. Ergo, I think GoldieBlox are even more important!
