FTW.55 Legos: Old vs New

Fatherhood in a Technological World – Message #55

Legos aren’t what they used to be.

I admit, over the recent  years, I fell into the trap of buying my kids so many of these boxes of Legos, you know, the kind where you only really can build one thing with it unless you get creative on a genius level by somehow linking up the Millennium Falcon and a “Friends” lemonade stand  for some bizarre cosmic juice booster.

It’s not like when I grew up and played with a generic collection of simple blocks, never using any instructions and building whatever came to mind. If today a kid did want to build a Millennium Falcon with rectangular blocks, I’m sure he or she could. It wouldn’t looks as slicks the $100 version, but that’s where the imagination connects the dots in the mind.

In the video, I go into the problem of the modern age with its advances in marketing Legos while lamenting the old days of a the hodgepodge set I used for years.

The take away is: I recommend, don’t get caught up into the marketing and let your children play with a generic set of Legos. You will save money, have more space in the house, and your children will exercise greater creativity (And avoid the tablet or iPad for as long as possible!).

In the video, I paraphrase a quote from a famous World War II general. To figure out what the correspondence is, you’ll have to watch it.
