Updating a Classic

Remember the red-haired girl with the multicolored Lego blocks?

Someone tracked her down (now 37 years old).

Her name is Rachel Giordano and she lives in the Seattle area, working as a naturopathic practitioner. In the current photo (right), she's holding one of the pinkified Lego sets that currently afflict us.

Writer Michele Yulo, writing at princessfreezone.com, came up with her own update on the classic Lego ad, juxtaposing her daughter holding some current "boy" Lego blocks:

I learned from the first article that the new "girl" Lego pieces are not interchangeable with the "boy" or regular blocks. Even worse.
