Lego, you owe me one (and you are welcome to pay me back in Legos … I really, really like Legos).
How about a Pregnancy Lego Kit! No, really, hear me out.
Lego is CLEARLY marketing itself toward geeks ages 20 – 40. A Voltron set? A James Bond car set? All the INCREDIBLY fancy, awesome, and VERY expensive Star Wars things? (See: $800 Millinium Falcon, $350 Cloud City, $500 Death Star, and on and on.) And you know what? It is working. I want all of it. ALL OF IT.
There is a kit that is $40 from the Lego site, $32.99 from Target right now (not that I’m paying attention) and it is just a bunch of figures doing outdoorsy stuff. One of them is a dad wearing a Bjorne with his baby inside it. I WANT THAT.
I would also guess that most of the Legos are being purchased by males. So this Lego Pregnancy Kit would be a fantastic gift for a soon-to-be (or already-is) father. But, I’m an equal opportunity Lego lover, it would also make a great gift for soon-to-be (or already-are) moms.
The kit would include:
- a TV
- a couch
- two guys and two ladies to cover your bases for same sex couples or not
- cleaning supplies
- a nursery (one wall could be blank, one wall could have a sticker on it of some classic nursery look)
- painting supplies
- little Lego heads that are terrified on one side and happy on the other side
- a fridge
- a fast food bag
- a little bag with clothes in it
- etc, etc.
The sky’s the limit here, people.
Hop to, Lego. I’ll take whatever you want as my prize (hint: Lego guy with baby in the Bjorne.)
