New Lego Product Features Female Veterinarian

Now girls can help Mia the veterinarian help animals in Lego’s Heartlake City.


Lego has introduced a new line of products of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). One of those new women-in-STEM is a veterinarian! Mia, part of the Lego Friends universe, is now a veterinarian and, according to her product description, girls can:

Help injured animals with Mia at the Vet Clinic! Today she is looking after a cat and a dog. Help her examine the dog on the table and check his heart and lungs with her medical tools. Then take him over to the scales to be weighed – he needs more exercise in the Vet Clinic’s animal playground. Later take the cat on the medical trolley to have her paw x-rayed in the sliding scanner. She will need to stay at the clinic for a while, so help clean, feed and pamper her to make her feel better. Then it’s time to answer the phone and check patient records on her computer —  it’s another busy day at the Vet Clinic!

Heartlake City, the city that’s part of the Friends line, features a lot of stereotypical girl hangouts — e.g., juice bar and hair salon — so Mia’s new clinic definitely adds some science to the town.

What do you think of Lego's new veterinarian, Mia?

Other new women-in-STEM products released by Lego include an aerospace engineer, a grease monkey, a dune bug operator and a deep sea explorer, according to Business Insider.
