I like this 1981 ad for Lego. It reads, in part: “Have you ever seen anything like it? Not just what she’s made, but how proud it’s made her. It’s a look you’ll see whenever children build something all by themselves. No matter what they’ve created.”

Compare the above to Lego ads for girls today. (Via Feministing)
