LEGO took decision to produce a disabled figurine of a young boy in wheelchair


“There are 150 million children with disabilities worldwide. Yet these kids are arriving into a world where, even before they’ve left their mums’ laps, they’re excluded or misrepresented by the very industry that exists to create their  entertainment, the objects that fuel their development, the starting blocks of life: Toys!” the initiator of the petition, Rebecca Atkinson, said. On its basement, the argumentation includes a big truth too many times ignored: for a human being the knowledge is acquired at all ages but sometimes strong perceptions are given to an individual when he / plays in his / or her infancy. Learning to respect others because they exist is a lesson which is the most appropriate to be transmitted at this age. In this special case a second truth is that the existence of such toys is a necessary step to help eliminate the discrimination at the level of perception. It’s a positive aspect for LEGO’s evolution and activity.To remember, the Lego Group began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks in 1949. As of July 2015, 600 billion Lego parts had been produced.
