The set’s production follows a massive online support campaign for an original idea by Ellen Kooijman. Many have praised the set for promoting women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths & Medicine).

The complete set consists of 165 parts and suitable for over 10s. It’s priced at £15.99 and is Item 21110.

Will you be buying it? Does it really help to ‘normalise’ women in STEMM?
