Ahhh the benefits of Legos…. My son dearly loves them… from creating puzzle boxes that fit together with depth and precision to swords and stands that offer “protection” from the monsters. He loves them and spends hours and hours creating and recreating things. You know most lego come with a little booklet that shows all the different things you can make with that particular set – yeah those get thrown to the wayside in our house; often found shredded into little pieces and rolled in to strings. He doesn’t care what the makers of Lego think he should make… his imagination is all he needs.
Weather it’s a “sword” or a complex series of squares that fit inside each other it something he loves… and that’s what matters.
