Lego is big in our house, finally. Fraser got two new Lego kits from his fairy godparents Bindy and Dan for his birthday and since then, Lincoln has been championing the Lego cause. He started taking Lego men everywhere with him and we’ve lost one in the car somewhere, as a result. It’s the Bermuda triangle in there because I’ve cleaned out the car and still can’t find the “spaceman”. To combat Lego men disappearances I bought this supersized plush Lego man from Kmart. He has a velcro removable hat and articulated arms. He’s about 40 cm tall and comes in four different varieties? characters?, from the Lego City range.
Anyway, cute..and highly visible. Much less likley to get lost or lose a hand or, God forbid, a head.
So the Duplo is being retired to the shed for the next baby in the family and the Megabloks are being given away to a neighbour for her fledgling daycare business. That leaves us with Fraser’s collection of Lego City in one small tub and Matt’s original Lego collection in another tub.
I’m now wondering how to manage all of it. Do I continue keeping them separate? Should I combine it all? Do you split yours into different colours, keep your Lego ranges separated, or merge the lot into one big knobby, kaleidoscopic mountain?
