I was going to respond to the Friends thread, but then realized that the Economic thread also veered in this direction. I know I am going to open a can of worms here, but...
Ultimately, I do not believe Lego will ever appeal to a large group of girls. Women, like us AFOLs, yes, but not girls. I say this because of the difference in how boys and girls play. Boys parallel play while girls play interactively. This is noted in the early years and continues as girls have confidantes and boys playmates for quite a number of years. Boys will happily sit side by side and build. Girls however want to interact. The act of building inherently limits this. So although Friends make look like Polly Pocket, it takes a long quiet time to get there. Obviously, there will be exceptions to this and I do believe that the daughters of many AFOLs will love Lego because of exposure, but that is still a small percentage of the girl population. Just my humble opinion...
