Larger than a minifigure, and with a kind of ball jointed head - he was missing his baguette, which is a shame because look how happy he looks up there, just walking around with some bread, dreaming of owning his own rocket pack.

While crossing the gender gap is not impossible, it is difficult and doing so risks stigma and ostracism, just ask the boy who dressed up as Daphne or the girl with the Star Wars water bottle.

The gender gap is evident in nearly every aspect of our society, but one of the first and most striking examples is toy choice. The LEGO Gender Gap: A Historical Perspective.
