Lego Launch First Disabled Minifigure in Response to #ToyLikeMe
Jan 27, 2016 — BOOM!!!! We've got genuine tears of joy right now. Firstly we’ve raised over 20% of our crowd fund target in the first week thanks to your generosity...secondly, LEGO have just rocked our brick built world! After nearly a year of hard work and lobbying from #ToyLikeMe and you guys, Lego have listened to this little ol' toy box revolution and included a wheelchair user with an assistance dog in their new Fun in the Park set unveiled at London Toy Fair this week!
Excitement factor - OFF.THE.SCALE!
LEGO we salute you! You've just made a 150 million children, their mums, dad, nans, grandads, teachers, carers, pet dogs and hamsters very VERY VERY happy! We're conga-ing up and down the street right now, (the hamster is at the back) flinging multi coloured bricks like confetti!
To all our backers, supporters and Lego, from the bottom of our playful hearts, THANK YOU!
Please help us continue to make real tangible change like this by sharing our crowd fund in your networks and asking your family and friends, even the postman, to support us! If you haven't already backed us with whatever you can afford, please click here to join the 'toy box revolution'
