This made me remember just how much I loved playing with my Legos as a child. However, my bricks always came in a large bucket/tub, and I just built whatever came to mind. These days they are sold as a predetermined set, accompanied with instructions. I prefered the loose blocks, and having to pick which project to disassemble in order to acquire the necessary pieces. It was heart breaking and bittersweet to take apart something you spent so much time creating, albeit exciting to have a new idea to work on. I also remember how the Lego pieces would get stuck together, and how it took all my strength to pry them apart! 😀
We’re used to dealing with companies that seem to take joy in foiling their customers, so when a company comes through, really performs above and beyond, we jump at the chance to warm a few hearts. Like say when an 11-year-old boy saves up his money for two years to buy a LEGO train set only to find out it isn’t being made anymore and is now a collectible, completely out of his price range. You better believe this one has a happy ending.
