A childhood dream

One of the things as children we were obsessed with was building stuff. And with what? Lego bricks and Play Mobil! We recall how costly it was to buy a set each time from the departmental store. And we saved our pennies in order to buy the coolest one. Do you remember constructing a jet out of these little bricks? Yeah, those were the days… today you might 3D print one. Heheh…

Over time Lego bricks had been “constructed” into various sculptures, some so elaborate that can only be said as works of art. When you trough the web you will discover it is a industry world in itself.

Today it appears Lego isn’t doing that well in terms of the sales of this traditional toy (they’ve been shedding jobs last year). And while they’ve been diversifying into other areas (parks, movies and cartoons for example), it seems like today’s children might not be as enamoured to this mode of play as we were. Yeah, sounds like we are dinosaurs huh? Did you enjoy playing with Lego bricks?

So we will watch closely and observe how this latest attraction (read here) will perform. Ok, so the house itself is not made of Lego bricks though it looks like it. There is actually a Legoland park in Johore Bahru across the causeway from our little red dot. We’ve not visited it yet before.

Did you collect lego play sets when you were growing up? Will you visit this new Lego house in Denmark?

  1. Hubby, who’s 13 years younger than me, loves his Lego so he introduced it to our little one. She does enjoy building. More interesting though is Lego Dimensions. There’s a teeny weeny Lego building, which gets connected to the X-box and the characters on the physical Lego are the characters in the game.

  2. Both me and my kids enjoyed Lego when we were young but I wish the Lego Technic sets had been available when I was a teenager, they’re fantastic.

    However modern Lego sets seem to be designed to create just one model whereas the older sets were geared towards using your imagination a bit more. Or is that just me being old and grumpy 🙂
