Anyway, they will have enough if Santa brings what they would like!
Lots of detail, great minifigs and plenty of them, and a brilliant centre piece in the carousel.
I just love it!
We got him more Cars Duplo and the look he gave means we will have to find him the last 3 sets to complete his collection.
I bought him a couple of the City "great vehicles" earlier this year and he had a lot of fun with them. So I got him a few more, and now he doesn't show much desire to play with them (he still likes playing with my sets, though!). Similarly, his grandpa got him a Bruder backhoe and he was ecstatic about it, even napped with it. So of course grandpa got more Bruder vehicles; a bulldozer, an excavator, etc. Now that he's got more, he doesn't show as much interest in playing with them.
I don't know if it's a paradox of choice or simply that young kids quickly move from one interest to the next.
However I do think he does get a bit overloaded - hence quite a few sets are high up not in general eye view with a selected few at his height. He seems to forget about the ones he can't see to concentrate on the ones he can see. (even though he was playing with them constantly a week or so ago).
Do I have a Lego related problem?
Note to my sons, leave the germs at school!
Going to huddle up under a blanket with hot ribena and the Christmas tree lights on whilst building the #40082 that the totally amazing @carlq was tremendously kind to send to me :-)
I have found now that sleeping propped up means I can actually get a few hours sleep a night without keeping the whole house awake sounding like a sealion begging for fish!
The gift was very well received and has been just the job in cheering me up today, thank you SO much.
I hope you're feeling much better very, very soon x
Christmas tree is up, and nearly decorated. Winter Village is up but not complete yet. Grandson has been a great help, and better yet he raked the leaves from our huge black walnut tree! He's even built some Lego with us.
And now I really want all the new Hobbit sets, but God knows I can't afford them all right now!
Geez I hate when this happens...
The Grottos were superbly done.
(And I picked up a couple of things in the shop but really it's hard to spend big when I know it's about a third cheaper on Amazon.)
Did anyone else notice Peter Jackson in one scene?
I also find myself justifying the purchase of the entire Lego Hobbit line now that I've seen the movie. Funny how that happens.
Kili to Tauriel: "Aren't you going to search me? I could have anything down my trousers" XD
I wonder how many will actually be there?
