There was a time when LEGO brick sets were anything but prescriptive. You’d be lucky to get a wheel or axle part, or maybe even a door or window piece in your giant set of loose bricks.

These days, of course, LEGO typically means putting together a complicated model that just doesn’t need glue (though you can certainly use it to make things permanent).

Imgur user “fickle” put up this photoset showing what a couple of enterprising young women did with their toy juice bar, from the LEGO Friends set.

“It was supposed to be a juice bar,” they wrote on the photo sharing service, (but) “a set of ED-209-inspired power armor is far better!

The first question you might be wondering, as one Imgur commenter did, “WHY WAS THERE FIRE IN A JUICE BAR?!”

What an amazing repurpose of a specific “girl-toy” model. Lets remember that your gender doesn’t actually limit you in terms of what you can and cannot do. Gendered toys hurt more than they help.
