LEGO creates first disabled figurine of boy with guide dog

LEGO plans to launch its first collection to feature a disabled figurine in June.

Metro.co.uk reported that the piece, which will depict a young boy in a wheelchair with his support dog, will be part of the brand’s Fun in the Park set. The set also will include a cyclist, a man pushing his baby in a pram, a harassed businessman en route to work, and an ice cream seller.

LEGO’s announcement follows a Change.org petition started by London-based advocates for the disabled. As of Thursday morning, the petition had garnered more than 20,000 supporters.

This isn’t the first time LEGO has included a figurine of a person in a wheelchair, Metro.co.uk reported— the company previously featured someone in the assistive device as part of its Community People set.
