Lego Markets Stay-at-Home Hipster Dad Figurine in New Line

Lego enthusiasts will soon be able to create a more modern Lego family — stay-at-home dad included.

Lego announced that their new "Lego City" line of figurines will include a kid in a wheelchair with a guide dog for the first time ever. A hipster stay-at-home dad dressed in plaid with his Lego wife dressed in a professional attire is also a part of the set.

The set is an attempt by the company to more inclusively represent the modern world, according to president of LEGO Systems Soren Torp Laursen.

"We need to stay in tune with the world around us," Laursen said to Fortune. "We aren't responding to demand from anyone. We are trying to portray the world around us and listen to our consumer base."
