My youngest has really gotten into Legos. Currently he's fixated on Star Wars, but I'll be encouraging him to switch over. Should mean there's a Lego LotR Wii game in the works as well.

Its cool, but the way things work in my family is that I'll spend however long it takes to build the Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc. set by the instructions and my kids will pull it apart within a half-hour to build a new weapon of mass destruction.

My kids love Legos, but I'm done buying the expensive sets. If family wants to get them, great.

I hear you. It's CRAZY how expensive those sets are as well. A large Star Wars set is over $100. Just a tip for the Lego lovers: TJ Maxx has great buys on Lego sets right now in their toy section. None of them are the hot new sets (like Ninjago), but there are Star Wars sets and some of the other magic/knight sets as well. They're like 75% off the original cost.

I can remember when I was 12....my parents bought me the $100 castle lego set that included the huge castle and a bunch of other shit. I spent days putting it together....got it all done....and then a friend of the family brought his kid over and he destroyed it in 5 minutes. I wanted to kill the little bastard.

I had collected a few lego sets here and there, thought it was neat. Went over to a friends house, and walked into his Bedroom for the first time.. nothing but legos everywhere... his parents bought him just about everything. I was so jealous and actually stopped collecting them cause I never was gonna get to where he was..

I had Lego envy.

My mom sent me this picture the other night of my son playing with my old castle Lego set down at her house.
