Kids and parents alike have always loved Lego, but the toy-block manufacturing company got even more props over the weekend when a Reddit user posted a note that Lego included in its packaging in the 1970’s.

The note has a strong message about gender equality, which was especially pioneering considering the era in which it was sent.

The note reads:

“To Parents.

The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls.

It’s the imagination that counts. Not skill. You build whatever comes into your head, the way you want it. A bed or a truck. A dolls [sic] house or a spaceship.

A lot of boys like dolls houses. They’re more human than spaceships. A lot of girls prefer spaceships. They’re more exciting than dolls houses.

The most important thing is to put the right material in their hands and let them create whatever appeals to them.”

Well done to Lego for being ahead of its time and not confining children to gender stereotypes!
