LEGO is coming out with a new line of figures that represent a wider portion of the population.
These LEGO figures include people with physical and mental disabilities, and I think it’s a great idea.
The new sets and series will feature characters with limb difference, Downs Syndrome, anxiety, vitiligo, and a dog with a wheelchair.LEGO Group
BUT, several FOX News hosts are calling the new LEGOS “woke,” and throwing — well, call it what it is — a hissy fit.
Say it ain’t so — LEGO is going woke. The company unveiling a range of new characters in the effort to be more inclusive. LEGO says the new characters will promote diversity and understanding.Harris Faulkner
The LEGO Group is introducing a new generation of LEGO Friends, and they wanted to bring input from kids into their new toys.
Children had a desire to see themselves, their friends and their families better represented.LEGO Group
But, FOX News can’t handle the new LEGO figures.

They are under the impression that the move by LEGO to be more inclusive is actually a political statement.
It shouldn’t be going on the way it’s going on — but the reason they force identity into toys is because they think identity comes with a built-in political orientation. And that’s what they’re after here. I’m not having it.Jimmy Failla
I mean, they are freaking TOYS.
If they happen to make a child with a disability feel a bit more special and included, bonus!!
The re-imagined LEGO Friends Universe aims to help kids become better friends to themselves and others while providing emotional and social development through play, to help them better understand individuality, diversity, and the modern world.LEGO Group
Good for LEGO for being understanding and proactive in their pursuit of inclusivity.
Come on, FOX News. It’s not being woke. It’s simply doing what’s right.
