Got all my cmfs up on 1 wall of my man cave/Lego room, we had some friends over and my daughter was showing their daughters the Lego room. Later that day when I went in I noticed straight away that there were some gaps.
Since then people are always escorted by an adult when they see the Lego room!!
I turned the entire room into a crime scene which no one could enter and found every single piece.
My nearly 3 year old boy loves to play with all the vehicles and can't always repair them when bits fall off. He does come a nd tell me though and knows to not take it outside or eat it.
A couple months ago, we had some friends over for dinner and my friend's husband picked up #21028 New York City Skyline and broke off part of one of the towers, but he was really apologetic and no pieces were lost.
William Shatner did this to my UCS AT-AT...
Nowadays the kids understand very well that they are not to touch Daddy's Lego without his express permission...but they also have plenty of their own to play with too!

...minifigs are a different story. Poor things don't stand a chance. Whenever I show him a new one he immediately wants to take them apart. Sometimes it's to trade parts with other minifigs, but more often than not it's to dismember them and leave their parts tossed on the floor. It's quite the crime scene.
Those of you that know me, know I collect Iron Man minifigs. Tony Stark has suffered every brutal death you can imagine at the hands of my son...multiple times.
Said niece also thoroughly dismantled Wally from one of my display areas in the flat. It's at her height though, so it was kinda silly of me to think it would escape notice. I've since built her the Friend's Emma's house and put all the minifigs that I gave her in there (mostly the Lego movie ones; there are a lot of interesting hats in this series). She is free to dismantle away.
put it back in 30s, surprisingly sturdy.
My son, who usually is the one dismantling my builds, was really annoyed, but I was almost freaking out. Ended up putting it away, but not before some real harm was done.
I had never seen slopes' edges get rounded by "playwear". The little monster did more damage to those bricks in half an hour than you can find in my entire 30+ year old collection!
