Greatest toy ever. Opening a box of Legos on Xmas day as a small child was maybe the closest thing to pure joy that I've ever experienced. You kids these days, with your X Boxes and your internets and your facebooks...you'll never know.

spiritplumber: Ker_Thwap: Legos make me sad.  Loved them as a kid, but I didn't have the hundreds of dollars for them and my kids grew up Lego'less.

If there's still time: Buy loose brick bags on ebay. They are super cheap.


What's the search term to find that? All I came up with was a 25 lb lot of bricks for $175 plus another hundo for shipping. That's not super cheap.

czetie: slepygryhnd: I'm in my office and can hear the distinct sound of my 7-year-old rustling through his box of LEGO in his room. He knows.

I just had the conversation with my nine year old about not borrowing pieces from my Lego Architecture models.

...Crap, I'm Lord Business, aren't I?


We very deliberately bought him boxes of just loose blocks for Christmas because I got tired of him building these elaborate things with specific pieces built just for that thing and then never taking them apart. I think following specific instructions to build specific things takes much of the discovery and learning out of the toy, but I understand from a business standpoint why they do all those special things. Since my son has all my LEGO from when I was a kid, plus all his new stuff, eventually I'd think there'd be a point at which the virtually indestructible product would saturate the market without things like the models. He loves the loose blocks, and I am getting a kick out of seeing what he comes up with to build without the instructions.

My parents never got me the cool LEGO sets (I had basic blocks).  I was always in awe of my friends' buckets of blocks that had windows, doors, clear blocks, wheels, etc.

Now in adult life as compensation, I collect too much LEGO... Star Wars, Architecture sets, Ferrari sets, etc.  Fark you, Mom and Dad!!   My wife often buys then for me and also she collects minifigs.  She rocks.
