As the father of a young daughter in a house full of super hero fans, it’s disappointing to see so few toys from this interest aimed at girls. Despite the fact that there’s a Batgirl, and a Supergirl, and plenty of both Marvel and DC females – the only time you ever get any of these characters is as a sideline to the male versions.
So it’s especially nice, since we’re also a house of Lego fans, to see that this area is being addressed with a wide range of DC Super Hero Girls sets that were released on January 1st. You’ll find all the details below, which I cribbed straight from the information Lego sent over.
