Here is the now famous 1981 Lego ad entitled, "What it is/is beautiful," side-by-side with my own ad which says, "What it is/is still beautiful." The girl on the right is my daughter (with her fresh new hair cut!) holding her Legos. She put those together and I took a picture of her with her creation--she looks just as happy and proud as the girl on the left. This is who she is--a kid who likes to build, use her imagination, and doesn't have to be told what it is to be a girl. She already knows.
So, take a look at these two pictures and ask yourself, what has changed between 1981 and today?
