For many years, Lego blocks have been thought of as a boy’s toy only. As generations have grown up, the gender roles have changed a little bit, but you still typically see more young boys asking for Legos rather than girls. A brilliant inventor is about to change all of that.
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi created a new and improved Lego that is designed to delight all children, and adults, of any age.
How do you ask? Because they’re….
…Made of chocolate!
These fully functional chocolate Lego pieces are the perfect toy to entice even the most anti-Lego parent or girl to indulge in a little guilty playtime.
To make them, chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular Legos.
Although this isn’t the first time someone thought of the idea…
There’s no question this is the first truly well designed and functional set for personal use…and consumption!
Just be careful not to handle them too long or they’ll melt in your hands.
Although Akihiro probably didn’t think that his new chocolaty toy would have a huge impact on the world, here’s hoping that these new fun edible Legos will bring every girl in America to the boys table for a little play time. If you hope so too, be sure to share with others using the buttons below.
