Don Rowe wrote an excellent article about Jürgen’s and my work and ask the question, are you also just a Truman? Valid and important point. Have a read of the full article.

I have also completed and interview with Geoff Hutchison from ABC Radio Perth:
Jesse Mulligan on Radio New Zealand:
Wallace Chapman interviewed me about our study “Have LEGO products become more violent?” on Radio New Zealand. Wallace certainly did his research since he also discovered my LEGO Unikitty. You can listen to the broadcast right here:
In the meantime, Huw Millington over at Brickset reported on his website about the study, which sparked a vivid discussion. One of the main discussion points seem again the question whether the increased violence in toys also make children more violent. We explicitly excluded this question from out study, but it seems that this is one of the main question that is on everybody’s mind. I also noticed that many blame the increase of violence in LEGO to licensed themes, such as Star Wars.
