LEGO rang in 2012 by launching a new line of toys , LEGO Friends, which are aimed at girls 5 and up. No big deal, right? Actually, to some it is a big deal. A petition was launched at Change.org is demanding that LEGO to stop selling out girls  with the new collection, arguing that the new line of toys feeds young girls a narrow set of stereotypes. So far, some 30,000+ people have signed the petition already. Will you join them? Head over to our sister site Inhabitots  to read our analysis of the issue and vote in our survey.
