Danish toy brick maker Lego unveiled a brand new set of rainbow-coloured collectible figurines on Thursday to have a good time the range of its followers and the LGBTQI+ group.
The “Everyone seems to be Superior” set options 11 monochrome mini figures, every with its personal particular person coiffure and rainbow color.
“I needed to create a mannequin that symbolises inclusivity and celebrates everybody, regardless of how they establish or who they love,” set designer Matthew Ashton mentioned in a press release.
He mentioned the truth that he belongs to the LGBTQI+ group had inspired him to create the brand new Lego bricks.
“I knew I wanted to step as much as the plate and make an actual assertion about love and inclusivity, and usually unfold some Lego like to all people who wants it,” Ashton mentioned.
“Children are a lot extra accepting of one another and all people else’s variations and I feel that is one of many issues we will all be taught from children, is simply go on the market, have enjoyable, be open to all people and the world can be a way more happier, inclusive and dwelling place,” he added.
The brand new 346-piece set will go on sale June 1 to coincide with Pleasure Month, which is devoted to celebrating the LGBTQI+ communities all over the world.
