Indeed - if only Lego wasn't so expensive, eh? My grandmother had a great stash that all the grandchildren loved playing with. I was shocked when I saw Lego prices and wondered how she had had so much. But of course, I wasn't the oldest grandchild by a long shot so she'd probably been accumulating it over years.When you do acquire more, have fun making sure no-one leaves it scattered in walkway paths. :-)
They do make girly Lego now...we are paid up members of the Lego club here so the three year old has a poster of some "Lego friends" on the wall of her room. We got a little kit of the girly stuff with the latest magazine, which obviously the ten year old and seven year old male Lego-holics weren't interested in, so she now has a Lego kit to call her very own.
I don't know that Lego is so expensive. When you think of the number of years you will use it, the myriad of possible creative uses and the fact that it is nearly indestructable, I'd say it's a pretty good value - as far as toys go, anyway.My advice is to purchase a box of bricks before worrying to much about the "kit type" vehicles etc. You need a basic slush of bricks to really enjoy it. The other day I saw my local toy store had a box for $20 of just axles and wheels. My boys are going to love that!
you need to come to my house! Lego galore!!
