A Chinese company, Xingbao, sells knockoff Legos as “LEGO compatible” sets for different scenes and buildings. Its traditional Chinese street series as one curious element unlikely to be approved by LEGO corporation: a house of prostitution with an assortment of Chinese courtesans. It is not clear if this is an effort to get Dads more interested in playing with the kids but LEGO’s slogan “Just Imagine” certainly takes on a new meaning.
The brothel is now labeled as the “Yihong Courtyard” but it was originally labeled “Yihong Brothel.”
