This is a really interesting article about how men's physiology and psychology change in middle age, including playing with kids toys, and it also mentions Lego.

(oh, and although its mainly about men, it also says women experience the same phenomena)

    Read this yesterday with a wry smirk on my face. My wife is a couple of years younger than plans to 'trade' her in. lol.

    Don't want a motorbike. Wouldn't mind a sports car but with 3 kids (although 2 of them are nearly 6' tall) and a dog getting anywhere could be tricky with 2 seats.

    And finally I have my toys. PS3 - online gaming is a scream if you get other middle aged guys in your team. Last but by no means least is Lego, it is like coming home. I absolutely love it!
