Valentina Tereshkova, the Russian astronaut, was the first woman in space. Pretty impressive, right? We decided, therefore, that we absolutely had to include her in our latest minifigure set of inspirational women.
The figure is available on its own, or as part of our International Women's Day 2020 set.
Printed on to genuine LEGO parts, these minifigs are the most amazing quality and fit into any LEGO enthusiast's collection.
The quote on her back reads: "It doesn't matter what country or political system you are from. Space brings you together."
20% of sales of this minifigure go to Kiva: https://www.kiva.org/about. Kiva is an international non-profit organisation which gives out micro-loans to women around the world to help them with their small businesses. The money is a loan and not a donation. When the loan is paid back to us, we then add the money straight back to the loan pot again, so that more and more women can benefit from these micro-loans. We do not receive interest from these loans.
