Interestingly some the Q&A looked at that; Lego has avoided marrying and such like to a certain degree and emphasized Friendship rather than boy-girl relationships. They still had a couple of wedding sets though for the disney princesses etc. it seems.

No little girl needs help from Lego management to marry her brother's Policeman Legoman to her Pony-loving Lego girl. Trust me, that happens without commercial help and then they have a Lego baby and feed it and take care of it.

And the baby Lego rides Lego dolphins for playtime.

Int he gritty dystopian world I created with lego when I was nine, there was only three female officers on the submarine. In those days female legos were defined by face type and seperating plastic hair pieces - I only had three female faces and two female 'hair' things - the third poor lass spent the entire war against the shark robots in a hat.

There wasn't much dolphins or babies though, but there were sharks, robots and of course, the aforementioned shark-robots.

We seem to be different species, Selous.

Nice shark....................

It would be hard to pretend it was a baby, though.

A violent 7 foot long sea creature that basically just swims and eats, eating so it can swim and swimming so it can eat, with a rotating layer of ever-replenishing teeth is the perfect substitute for a human infant Phebe, where's your imagination?

I do remember once my cousin Cassandra and I did build a peaceful lego city though, it was very pleasant - I say city, it was a village, but had excellent infrastructure if I do say so myself. There was a police station and a fire station and a park. No local government though there may have been some kind of plutocrat or patrician that 'ran things' - ahh...the utopias of childhood....

Cousin Cass a policewoman now and sadly for some reason neither of us get to indulge in lego these days. I still feel a pang of nostalgia when I'm in the city center and see lego on sale...ah to build then what I know now!! I suppose this is why many fellas do modelling of aircraft and such like...the need to build stuff

Thank you Selous,

I've printed it and will read in some public place while on holiday, I'm sure it'll make one hell of a conversation starter
