I have a son who is about 1.5 years old, and a couple months back, bought him is first LEGO set. It has been fun watching him play with it, learning how to use the pieces more nimbly. It’s funny, I have hundreds of LEGO sets, but this tiny little set gets dramatically more usage than anything I have. It makes me appreciate the true nature of LEGO – it’s a TOY meant to be played with!
The set is, of course, a DUPLO set. Just a starter pack consisting of 30 pieces, mostly basic shapes, and one figure:
This small group of pieces constituted his entire collection, and it’s plenty for him. Oddly, that isn’t the case for my collection!
There is something to be said for not keeping LEGO mint in box.
