I thought this sounded like a cool idea:
Then I got started creating a holiday card with Minifigure representations of my own family, and found that it was not only not easy, but downright impossible. Even though Lego appears to sell a variety of Minifigures With Disabilities (“MWD”), including Determined Wheelchair Tennis Player,
Pissed Off Wheelchair Soccer Player,
Really Pissed Off Wheelchair Basketball Player,
and Reasonably Emotionally Well-Adjusted Khaki Shirt Guy,
their Minifigure Holiday Card Generator does not have any wheelchair-using options.
Hey, Lego, what’s up with that?
Of course, that didn’t stop me from trying my best within Lego’s narrow-minded constraints:
Yes, Tim’s entire disability experience is represented by… a wooden leg.
