LEGO Celebrates International Women's Day With Amelia Earhart Airplane Set

LEGO is gearing up to celebrate International Women’s Day with the release of a tribute to Amelia Earhart.

The record-setting pilot was known for many things including her fight for gender equality and empowering females through her writing and lectures, and she was also highly competitive in the male-dominated field of aviation — setting the record for becoming the first woman to make a nonstop solo transatlantic flight. Sadly, during her attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 1937, she mysteriously vanished, although her legacy still lives on.

LEGO’s tribute to her arrives in the form of a brick-built Lockheed Vega 5B plane with a stand and a LEGO version of Amelia Earhart herself. Made with 203 pieces, this set will be available from March 6 – 14 for a price of $19.99 USD or free with a purchase over $99 USD.
