Activist Legos, and Other Parenting News

Hosted by

Speaking of toys, the company behind Legos just announced that it’s reissuing one of its most popular toy lines. It’s called “The Research Institute.” It’s a laboratory scene, and all the figurines are women. The idea is to show girls that they, too, can grow up to be scientists. Is this a positive development? We discuss that and other parenting trends.
