It's one thing to be increasing the male/female ratio in City sets and quite another to devote a whole line to something that feels more in place with the Polly Pockets crowd of shoppers.

Bellville had even more pink, BURPy parts and giant doll-esque figures, yet that doesn't seem to have raised the ire of consumers. What is it about Friends that is different? How does it prevent any young girl who is interested in Creator or even Ninjago from buying Creator or Ninjago sets?
