Fairy Princess Darth Vader

This little girl also creates her own badass female legos!
This awesome little girl creates her own baddass girl legos because the girl legos are limited to gender role stereotypes, (i.e. shopping, going to the beach, and the hair salon) Some of her creations are pretty cool.

Her mom started a Tumblr to take photos:
http://badasslegogirls.tumblr.com/

"The Legogirl was “star of the week” in her preK class last week (every child takes a turn displaying their favorite book, toy, family photos, etc.). She didn’t want to bring in her Legos, although they are the only thing she plays with, because she was worried her “girlfriends” would make fun of her for playing with “boys’ toys.”

We finally convinced her to bring in a few of her “badassLegogirls” creations, but it did make me sad, especially since these are kids between 4 and 5, and they are already absorbing and modeling these narrow gender rules.”
