Lego have unveiled a mini figure of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The figure has been created as part of an International Women’s Day collection. The Ardern toy is themed around her Covid-19 response.
The figurine comes in two colours, Ardern’s skin tone and the traditional LEGO yellow. Both of the options show Ardern holding a ‘Unite against Covid-19’ poster.
The back of the figure is the quote “I refuse to believe you cannot be both compassionate and strong”.
Ardern joins the list of big names made into the figurines, including Lady Diana, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Florence Nightingale, Rosa Parks, Michelle Obama and Harriet Tubman. The 2021 collection are figurines of Jane Austen, Ella Fitzgerald, Boudica and Audre Lorde.
The figure sells for about NZ$23.
