As a female structural engineer, I’ve known about GoldieBlox toys for a few years.  Unfortunately my daughter fell far, far from this engineering tree so I haven’t bothered to purchase any of their toys for her.  This commercial did capture her interest, for all the wrong reasons.  She watched it three times to pick out which of the awesome pink toys she has and which ones she needs to put on her Christmas list.  There is no danger of me coming home to a booby-trapped house. 

Mothers of the next generation of female engineers may need to enter their homes with caution after this commercial :).
