_You open a box of new Lego ... finding only pink and purple Legos. Oh no! Girl Lego? The Lego company is planning on coming out with a new set of Lego this month that are designed just for girls called Lego Friends. They will have different colors and minifigures than the regular Legos. I don't think girls should have their own Lego because Lego is particularly for boys, if girl Lego doesn't work it will be a waste of money for the company, and girls are not going to know that there is a Lego made for them.

_One reason that girls shouldn't have their own Lego brand is that Lego is particularly for boys is because there are Ninjago Legos and Star Wars Legos, which are collections that most boys like. Boys will concentrate for a long time on Legos and it is a popular hobby for boys. Finally, the design of Legos isn't really for girls.
Another reason that girls shouldn't have their own Legos is if Lego Friends doesn't get popular, it will be a waste of money for the Lego company because they are spending millions of dollars to make those Legos. An article about Lego Friends said that they are making a whole new collection of minifigures just for girls, and this wastes a lot of money. The company may not have enough money later on to make any more Lego for boys!
Lastly, girls should not have their own Legos brand because how will girls even know that there are Legos just for them? Girls don't usually get Lego magazines which is how we learn about new Legos. They won't get catalogs either because they are not signed up and how would the Lego people know where the girls live? The last reason is that girls barely even go into Lego stores. How would the girls get the news if they're not there?
In conclusion, I don't think girls should have Lego because Lego is really for boys, if the idea doesn't work it will be a big waste of the company's money, and the girls won't even know that there are Lego for them. If you know the people who make Lego, let them know my point of view! It may work and stop this craziness.
