I recently bought my 10 year old brother a pretty decent set.. Except that, I took it home and built it. Before I gave it to him. LOL
Now, let me clarify, I didn't do it just to be a dick.. I used to play with Legos a lot as a child, and had a lot. Due to some burglary one day when I was still a kid, I lost all of mine. By that time I was around 14 or 15, so I didn't really play with them all that much anymore. But I still had plans on giving them to my first younger brother. (who was around 8 or 9 the time they were stolen)
Now I'm older, (27) my first brother is at the age where "playing" isn't something he does now, (17) But my second brother is 10, so perfect time for some Legos.
There was no special occasion or anything, he didn't even know I was going to get them. But I figured all the fun I was going to get out of them was pretty much done, as I still enjoy building up the big sets and making everything functional, but I don't do so much "playing" anymore.. Haha. So I pretty much bought it and figured I'd go home and build it, and then take it over to my lil brothers' to surprise him with it.
(He was pretty happy to just get the set I built, and didn't even mention me building it first.)
So.. Any of you still "play" with Legos? And play could mean many things such as, just building things/sets up and never touching them again, or collecting. Or still like the good ol' days, and just plain playin'. And, mind if I ask how old?
