A little girl who called on Lego to make their toys more egalitarian tells Amy her opinions on marriage and dresses. (2:29)

- Cici, you're six years old.

- Yes.

- Let's talk about it.

I heard that you changed how they're running Legos.

- Maybe.

- Tell me if this is true or not.

You didn't like thatthe girl Legos didn't do

any actions and so you would take the heads

off the girls and you'd put them on the guys' bodies.

Is that true?

- Yes.

- And I heard that you wrote a letter and that they

changed and made it so that the girl Legos do things.

Is that true?

- Yes, I think.

- That's pretty cool.

Do you know that you're super cool?

- No.

- Well, I'm telling you, it's a fact.

Do you know any jokes?

- Yes.

- Will you tell me one?

- What does Darth Vadersay when he's finished

eating his food?

- What does Darth Vadersay when he's finished

eating his food?

I don't know, what?

- I'm

♪ done done done done done done done done ♪

(laughs)

- That's good.

What's your favorite food?

- Ramen.

- Do you like to play sports?

- Actually, I do karate.

- Karate.

Do you know any moves?

Not yet?

- I haven't been in a class yet but I'm going to sign up.

- How would you describe your style?

- I don't know.

- Because usually you pick out your own outfits, right?

- But sometimes when I have to go to special places,

I have to wear dresses but I don't wear them very often.

Like, I had to do it when I went to this wedding.

- You had to wear a dress?

- Yes, I did not like it.

- You don't feel like yourself in it?

- You always trip in them sometimes when you run

and I have to run a lap every day

and I also don't like skirts.

- Do you want to have a family someday?

Do you want to get married?

- I think I could take one of my brother's babies.

I know he's going to have a lot.

- You think your brother's going to have a lot

of babies and you'll just kind of take one of those?

What about do you wantto some day get married?

- No.

- Why not?

- I don't know.

- When you think about marriage or getting married

what do you picture?

- Getting married with someone and going on a date.

- And you don't want to go on a date?

- No, I don't like going to fancy places.

Well, sometimes I do.

- What if it were a date and it was not at a fancy place?

Would you want to go then?

- I don't know.

Maybe yes, maybe no.

- What if the personsaid, "Cis, I want to go

"get some ramen and then do some karate."

What would you say then?

- Yes.
