The bomb went off in my sons room... 40+ sets in 1000's of pieces.
My 4 year old had a play date friend come over today while I was at work.
40+ of the 50+ sets that were displayed in his room have been completely demolished and were in pieces on his bed when I got home. ugh. (Every DC/Marvel set over the past 2 years and dozens of SW sets)
It's a hard thing being this neurotic/OCD with children.
While I want my child to play with his Lego, I would prefer if the smashing be done with the large bin of spare bricks that are available for he and his friends to create, build and smash as they please. Not the countless Star Wars/DC/Marvel displays located all over his room. BUT where is the fun in that right? I get it... sort of.
Last time this same friend came over the same thing happened on a much smaller scale (DC only) and we talked about which Lego is for smashing and which is for playing but not deliberately taking apart. He seemed to get it and there has been no issue since (about 5 months), until today.
All 40+ sets are in pieces in a bin now outside his room. Not for any sort of punishment but for lack of any other place to put it. I doubt I will have any of it back together anytime soon though as it will take several hours to sort and put these sets back together. His room looks completely bare without the Lego displays.
I may take the opportunity to clean and bag several of the sets and put them in storage. But the sorting and finding each brick will be incredibly time consuming task, something of which I have very little of right now.
Am I expecting too much from my 4 yr old to not destroy the display sets ups in his room? Playing with them is one thing. Having them fall apart is natural and fun to rebuild. This was something completely different.
