We have a mixture of heirloom Lego and modern day gifts. I personally do not enjoy the texture of Lego, but my son adores the endless creations he can conjure with his tiny hands. Young engineer minds are allowed to be expressed, I do not brush these ideas off lightly. They are photographed and recorded. A few years later he scans the images of what he has made and delights in recalling his hours of ingenious designs.
The girls also engage in Lego, but it does not capture their interest for long.
Well as for my husband….. I have to tell him it’s for the kids not him!!!
