If your kids love Legos, you may have noticed the strong lack of female minifigures. A female named Alatriel noticed and wanted to change that. There is a website called Lego Cuusoo where people can submit new ideas for Lego sets, and if they get 10000 votes, they will get made. Alatriel has several ideas for female lego set, which include her being a paleontologist, and astronomer, an astronaut, a chemist, a geologist, a fire fighter, etc.

 

Please go to Lego Cuusoo and vote for the palenotologist set she has put up there:
