I'm not going to lie this Lego set kind of made me cry, I spent my whole childhood playing with Legos and my brother always had the coolest sets where the characters would go on exciting adventures and be heroic, but for me I had the "girls" sets which were more set up to like a doll house, where the characters would be cooking, cleaning and riding horses at best. I have always loved science and I will be studying Biology in college. I'm so glad to see girl characters being shown in a different light with this set of woman in the scientific fields. It fills my heart with joy that I will be able to buy toys like this for my children, so they know they can be whatever they want to be it wont matter if they are a boy or a girl! Thank you Lego. I hope to see more and more of these types of sets in the future, with possibly a biologist, herpetologist, astronaut, physicist, engineer, marine biologist, mathematician and doctor/surgeon options. The possibilities are endless!

I have to protest that despite the strong demand for this set, Lego choose to print such a limited run. My wife has a Ph.D. and is a Lego collector, yet this set was sold out within 24 hours of release. I would have tried snatching it up but I had no idea how small the print run was going to be. Additionally a large part of the fact the item became unavailable everywhere almost immediately was speculators who bought up large quantities for resale in secondary markets at 4-5 times the listed price because they knew that the print run was too small for the demand. I saw the Lego movie and was impressed by the seriousness of the movie in treating the divide between adult collectors and builders and a children's toy. But Lego has just completely dropped the ball here. I can't buy this product for my wife. She can't buy it for herself. I can't buy this product for my daughters. Someone needs to tell someone somewhere in the offices that Lego bricks are not a boy's toy. They are a people toy. They still don't get it.

Make more!

By andy419

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO CUUSOO Research Institute (21110):

This is a great set, and my wife and I were hoping to buy a set for every kid in our lives, but it sold out so fast! If it was "overwhelmingly popular", why not make more? Do you not enjoy making money? I don't get it. It seems ridiculous that people have to resort to paying double the original price on eBay. The LEGO store near our house never even got any in stock.

Why so few released?

By Marge29

from Amherst

Comments about LEGO CUUSOO Research Institute (21110):

We have hundreds... maybe thousands of Legos at our house - plus multiple Mindstorms kits. My kids are now in and past college and still occasionally take them out when they are home. I was trying to prototype something for work, and thought I'd use Lego characters to do this. That's when I realized we have nearly no female figures. I mentioned this to my 20-something daughter, who wasn't at all surprised. She'd noticed, while growing up, that none of the characters we had in our house were female until the Harry Potter kits came out. So, back to my prototyping... I saw this and thought it had just what I would need - only to find out that it was available for how long? Two weeks? Here's a kit with THREE female scientists, and it's immediately a collector's item? Since then, I've checked Target and Amazon and found multiple kits with only male characters. But, no other "traditional" Lego set has only female characters. Last thing... they just released Scooby Doo and guess what? You have to purchase the most expensive of the five new sets to get both female characters.

Bought this for 10-year-old grandson who promptly put it together. Later I found that university age granddaughters were very jealous. Pity it is no longer available.

I purchased this for my 11 year old daughter. She absolutely loved it. I only wish they would expand on this series and have more female scientists.

Great Kit - Lego Should Make More

By LegoMomOnTheGo

from Ponte Vedra Beach

Comments about LEGO CUUSOO Research Institute (21110):

This kit is fun, easy to use, and actually shows real women in science. My son even wants his own kit. Lego should definitely make more of these kits or similar ones. Clearly since it sold out so fast, the demand is there.

Where are the women????

By EEOB

from Saint George

Comments about LEGO CUUSOO Research Institute (21110):

The fact that this set has been offered twice and sold out twice shows how much demand there is for female minifigures in Legos. I'd love to get another copy even though I was lucky enough to get one already. The set is cute and was fairly easy for my six year old to build with a little help from mom. It definitely fills a major gap with Legos. The Friends line doesn't satisfy this demand as it is essentially a different toy and targets a very different market -girls who do not like regular Legos. However, there are plenty of girls and their mothers who like regular Legos but are frustrated by the lack of female minifigures. With the new pirate line there are 21 human minifigures and only two of them are female. I was excited that one kit had one female and two males (how sad is that?). I don't care that it looks like the few females are in charge when 45% of them are missing. The same thing is true for the City line and you certainly can't argue that there are mainly men in cities (which I've heard as an argument against more females in the pirates). Come on Lego, even my friends with boys are frustrated over this. I would have loved to see this designers idea of women in construction be developed. My daughter went through a major construction phase when they built a bridge near our home and all of the toys we bought her had men in them.

Great product!

By Annbcn

Comments about LEGO CUUSOO Research Institute (21110):

I bought this set as a present for my boy, 8 years old. He's studying about paleontology. He was very excited and happy when he saw the box! Then he made it within 30 minutes. The dinosaur skeleton is his favorite. I come back today because I want to buy it again, for my friend's son, but unfortunately, it's a retired product already! Why? It was not long when I bought this set. :( So sad. Please make it again.
