Who cares about the sociology, parts is parts and every new line gives us something new?

This pretty much sums up most of it. Glad to see the hair looks compatible and it comes off in a regular way. I'll be keeping an eye out for how they look on female minifigs and checking Bricklink for some good pieces in the future. I think they should have kept the minifigs the same as the system minifigs. At least the Friends minifigs can be taken apart so the target audience can experience some of the things we love about our minifigs.....mixing and matching.

I understand they are trying to reach a market of "girls who don't like lego" - but don't forget the girls who do like lego!
I actually think that a whole line fashioned towards girls like this disappoints me and I find it rude. Lego is about FUN for children of all ages. Why promote segregation of fans?
Plus these figures are tacky and I'm sure girls would prefer just more female minifigs.
