LEGO Bricks & More My First Princess 10656

    Includes a princess minifigure.
    Features castle, horse, carriage, grooming station, carrot and pieces in 
hard-to-find light pink and blue colors.
    Castle section measures over 3" (10cm) high, 2" (6cm) wide and 1" (3cm) 
    Includes easy-to-follow building instructions with inspirational ideas.
    Makes a great gift!

You think the princess is bait-and-switch for the building blocks?
I have to admit that chin, stature and facial expression of the
"princess" very much suggest "drag queen" but I'm not sure how to get to
engineering from there.
