While one of the world’s most beloved building toys has included figures representing emergency service workers, astronauts and even popular science fiction characters, it has never truly reflected the parasport community. Until now. To continue its tireless efforts around championing inclusivity, the CPC has launched the “ParaExpansion Pack”. This new toy prototype features 11 custom minifigure pieces representing individuals with disabilities, and nine custom pieces representing Paralympic sport, including a short arm, prosthetic legs, running blades, a basketball wheelchair and more. Each piece is designed to seamlessly complement existing sets. 3D model files have also been made available on the website for people to 3D print the pieces themselves. The CPC hopes the world’s leading makers of building toys will take notice and consider incorporating some of the new pieces into future sets, making them more representative of the population as a whole.
