Lego IdeasLego announced on Wednesday that it's releasing a "Women of NASA" set.
The $24.99 kit goes on sale November 1 — just in time for the holiday gift-giving season — and builds on a laudable trend of selling toys that are more inclusive of women.
"Women of NASA" features four minifigurines of pioneering women from the space agency: astronauts Sally Ride and Mae Jemison , astronomer Nancy Grace Roman, and computer scientist Margaret Hamilton.
