I almost bought the soft bricks but the cost put me off in the end. Cheapest set here runs to about €600. Who knows what Santa will bring though? :D
Same rationale with Quattro. Although accepted as an excellent toddler toy, there was an insufficient market for a premium building toy with such a limited audience.
At first my wife didn’t understand what I meant about LEGO Legos, and not having grown up with them as a toy, she had no idea the possibilities beyond just simply stacking some blocks up. Now however? We have a football toxbox full of Duplo (some new, some we’ve got lucky & found secondhand in great shape), which is used by kids happily along with AFOL’s teaching them. And my wife? She has her own collection of Friends. No word on whether any of those will get passed down to our granddaughter yet.
I do admit, maybe even a little guilty, I haven’t pushed to source out LEGO pre-Duplo sets at all for them either to replace the megablox. The few MB we have serve their purpose well enough for the short age range they’re intended for, and so put toy money into Duplo instead.
