Interesting!From a LEGO brochure from 1974: "To Parents. The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls. It’s the 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 dolls houses. The most important thing is to put the right material in their hands and let them create whatever appeals to them."

Daniel Fry discovered this brochure in boxes of LEGOs at his grandmother's house and posted it to Reddit. He told HuffPost that "I was surprised at what a modern message it was and how simply and eloquently it communicated a very powerful idea. I thought people would be interested to see that such a well-known brand like LEGO was so progressive 40 years ago.... I hope people will be reminded of how important it is not to lock their children in to playing with one type of toy, and to let them play how they want to, to nurture creativity and individuality."

While harder to find in stores today, free-form LEGO sets are still available. A great option that is currently on sale at Amazon is the colorful 790-piece Creative Brick Box at amzn.to/2lomeQN

For younger children, the 80-piece DUPLO Brick Set is also on sale for 43% off at amzn.to/2lPRpoj

At A Mighty Girl, we believe strongly in giving all children the opportunity to build and create so we've showcased our favorite building toys -- which are all excellent choices for both girls and boys -- in our blog post, "Top Building Toys for Mighty Girls" at www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=10430

For more ways to encourage your Mighty Girl's interest in building, we've also featured many books about girls and women who love engineering, math, and science in our blog post, "70 Books to Inspire Science-Loving Mighty Girls," at www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=13914

This makes me so happy! Fruit Share Winnipeg has found a new home at T&T Seeds and is ready to ensure backyard fruit continues to be put to good use.

It has been an honour and privilege to work with the amazing volunteers who gave so much time and energy to launch and grow Fruit Share. We're thrilled with this transition and welcome the new energy and ideas that will come with it.

Danielle at T & T Seeds has been a long time friend and supporter of Fruit Share. We couldn't have chosen a better FS champion! We know Fruit Share and all it's members will be in good hands with her and the entire team at T&T Seeds.

Please show your support, sign up today.
