My five-year-old kids love Lego, too. They especially like the Star Wars stuff but they certainly don't leave it on the shelf. My wife or I put it together for them, but once they break it into pieces they will usually just build other stuff with it. They also like K'Nex, which I think are pretty cool.wayneanneli said:I like that one Nate, nothing like playing fetch with your kids . My children didn't really get anything useless this year either. Lego was the big hit this year. Here in Sweden, Lego just seems to be one of those timeless toys that can be passed down from child to child. No batteries, ala atp, safe to play with, and good at building motor skills and creativity. The only Lego that we consider useless are all the Bionicle, Technic, and film related Lego (Harry Potter, Star Wars). It seems that once children build up the models, that they simply put it on a shelf and don't want to take it apart. Plus the Bionicle Technic stuff is just too strange and uninteresting, and doesn't do anything to develop a child's creativity. The whole idea with Lego is to build and be creative. Lego City and World City are the best for that.
