LEGOS

Recommended Posts

So, we just took our kids to Chicago last week. One of the main focal points was LEGO Land Schaumburg. Great City by the way, we did the museum, aquarium, Willis Tower, some shopping... saw a few courses I'd like to come back and play when it's not 0° and covered with snow.

 

Anyways, I remember spending countless hours constructing those sets as a kid. Now that my kids are big enough... man, there are so many LEGO's. We have been collecting the Minifigures since the original LEGO Batman Movie, it has became quite fun trying to find all of those little guys/gals.

 

Started on bigger sets with a Temple (Ninjago), and the Lightning Jet (Ninjago). They are hooked.

 

Anyone else ? Or am I the only one?

 

I even met Darth, Indiana Jones, and R2D2 at that LEGO Land. Wish those places were around when I was a kid.

My kids love Legos. One thing that strikes me today is that we used to get generic pieces to build whatever when we were kids. Now all the sets are so specialized and trademarked to some movie.

My kids were LEGO maniacs and my one son still is at age 30. He and his kids have a LEGO corner in the house.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

My daughter has a table set up with all of her LEGO sets in our basement. She's loving it, plus it's a break from her American Girl dolls

My Grandson was really into the LEGO Stuff. I think he still is but more into sports right now.

I toured the LEGO plant in CT years ago as part of a manufacturing engineering group. Was pretty cool tour.

I'd said the Star Wars legos are quite awesome, but way to expensive for my blood. Now if i had children it be a whole different ballgame.

Check out Action Figure Therapy! They sell after market mini figures such as "Terminally Ill Contraband Manufacturing Underwear Science Teacher Minifigure" (aka, dad from breaking bad) and "Pop Singer Whose Only Crime Was Loving Children Too Much (And Maybe Molesting Them) Minifigure" (maybe MJ?)

 

Store

 

PS, maybe not the best site for kids... they do have some non-licensed stuff that kids would dig though, like every Marvel character, He-Man, Godzilla, you name it!

You know they do make AG “legos”....

 

Just took the girls to the store in Chicago... pretty sure my debit card melted.

My 6yr old is super in to legos. Thankfully he can do them pretty much all by himself. My 4yr old got his first regular set for Christmas this year (as opposed to the junior or duplo sets). We put it together last night and he was sooooo excited it was just awesome.

 

The shear number of hours I've spent at the kitchen table supervising builds could probably rival time spent on MGS.

I hear you. My 3 year old is a monster and likes to eat and destroy everything my 7 year old builds. I had to start glueing the bigger pieces together unfortunately. Spent about 9 hours over Holiday break putting those things together.

Both my daughter and son are into Legos. I think they are great toys for the following reasons:

 

1. They aren't electronic. No charging needed, or batteries to run.

 

2. They stimulate the imagination. Sure you initially build something from the instructions, but inevitably you make your own creation.

 

3. Sets are mostly interchangeable... So a star wars Lego set can interact and exchange pieces with a ninjago or batman set.

 

Reasons why I hate legos:

 

1. We have a plush area rug in the family room. Kids drop piece in said rug and I envitably step on the lost pieces. Like walking on a carpet full of invisible tacks.

 

2. A buzillion pieces and my son can't find the one miniscule Lego piece to complete a build. Of course it's a one of a kind piece so no luck in using something from another set.

 

3. See number 1 😂🤣

Preach on!  Nothing worse than stepping on lego's.  I started wearing crocs around the house just to protect my feet.
