The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls.
It’s imagination that counts. Not skill. You build whatever comes into your head, the way you want it. A bed or a truck. A dolls house or a spaceship.
A lot of boys like dolls houses. They’re more human than spaceships. A lot of girls prefer spaceships. They’re more exciting than doll houses.
The most important thing is to put the right material in their hand and let them create whatever appeals to them.
The original photo of these magnificent Lego instructions to parents was uploaded to imgur by the user redditor fryd_, where it received a lot of attention. An analysis of the photo by io9 found that it is an authentic page by Lego. Here is the original photo, looks good to me.
The vintage photo of the Lego instructions struck a chord with many people and parents especially. Although the fact that these instructions were needed tells us that equality wasn’t natural even then, it does give hope that we’re in the right direction. I wish the Lego company these days would also treat boys and girls equally and not direct girls to pinkish sets and boys to technical blue sets. At any case, different posts of these instructions got thousands of likes and shares and they are all over the social web.
